The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday invited applications for the post of head coach, batting coach, bowling coach, fielding coach, physiotherapist, strength and conditioning coach and administrative manager.
“The current coaching staff of Team India (Senior Men) will get an automatic entry in the recruitment process,” the BCCI said in a press release. Team India coach Ravi Shastri, along with the other support staff, have been given a 45-day extension following the World Cup 2019.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has streamlined the eligibility criteria for the selection of the next head coach.
The head coach should have coached a Test playing nation for a minimum of two years or three years with an associate member/A team/IPL side. The applicant also should have played 30 Tests or 50 ODIs.
The criteria remain the same for batting, bowling and fielding coach except the number of games played. The three personnel should have played at least 10 Tests or 25 ODIs and be less than 60 years of age.
The team is set to have a new trainer and physio after the departure of Shankar Basu and Patrick Farhart following India’s semi-final exit in the World Cup.
