However, since Sachin Tendulkar was not available in the country right now, the player has decided to help the board in selecting the coach using video conference facilities.

“The said committee… will process and scrutinise all the applications, conduct interviews and seek presentations from candidates as the committee deems fit,” said BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke in the statement.

The committee can also review any of the 57 candidates if they feel that one of the trimmed candidates could be looked into.

“Should the committee desire to look at all the 57 applications as well, the said will be made available to them,” the statement added.
