Former Team India player Virender Sehwag has sent the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) an application for the post of the Indian cricket team's head coach with only two lines written about his experience.

According to media reports, the former India opener sent the BCCI a two-line application instead of a detailed curriculum vitae (CV).

He wrote, “mentor of the Indian Premier League team Kings XI Punjab and have played with the current Indian team players.”

The BCCI has asked Sehwag to send them a detailed application and not just two lines.

The term of current Indian team coach Anil Kumble will end after Champions Trophy and the board is looking for a new coach to replace him.

There were some rumours of his rift with team India skipper Virat Kohli which was rubbished by the captain a day before India’s opening match of the Champions Trophy against Pakistan.

However, days before the start of the ICC Champions Trophy in England, the BCC invited applications for the head coach.

Apart from Viru, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Dodda Ganesh and Lalchand Rajput are also in the fray for the top job.
