  • India's next coach: Mike Hesson on shortlist of six

A total of six candidates viz Ravi Shastri, Tom Moody, Phil Simmons, Mike Hesson, Robin Singh and Lalchand Rajput are all set to compete for the high-profile job of team India's head coach. He scored 3,830 runs in Tests at 35.79 with 11 centuries, and also took 151 wickets.

Rajput then served as the coach of Team Mumbai in the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) before replaciing Pakistan's Inzamam-ul-Haq as the head coach of Afghanistan in 2016. While he may not have as much experience as the worldwide names on this list, he was the coach cum manager of the Indian team that lifted the inaugural World T20 trophy in 2007.

India may have failed to win the T20 World Cup in 2016 and the ODI World Cup in 2015 and 2019, but the Shastri-Kohli duo helped the country climb to the top of the Test rankings with a historic series triumph in Australia.

The same year, Anil Kumble took over as India's head coach and Shastri was back in the commentary box.

The Board had received over 2,000 applications for different coaching positions with the Indian team, with the contracts of the current staff having run out after the 2019 World Cup, and an extension being granted only for the ongoing tour of the US and the West Indies.

Shasti's tenure as head coach has produced mixed results as the team lost away Test series against South Africa and England, but won a series in Australia for the first time. He is now serving as the head coach of the Zimbabwe cricket team after being appointed in the role in August 2018.

Rajput played just two Tests and four ODIs for India, with meagre returns.

Former Australia cricketers Tom Moody is a seasoned coach in global cricket as well as in franchise cricket, especially in India with stints at Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The visitors' midfielder Leander Dendoncker saw his second half effort ruled out after his initial header struck team-mate Willy Boly on the arm.

He then joined as the Mumbai Indians head coach in 2010 and he is now the fielding coach of the franchise.

Post-retirement, Moody became the director of cricket in Worcestershire before becoming the Sri Lankan national coach in 2005.

In December 2012, Moody was announced as the head coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Along with his steady success with Sunrisers that saw them win the title in 2016, he has also worked with Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League, Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League and Bangladesh Premier League franchise Rangpur Riders. The Australian coach guided the side to the final of the 2007 World Cup before stepping down from the post.

The former West Indies all-rounder played worldwide cricket between 1987 and 1999. Besides this, Simmons also played in 207 first-class matches and 306 List A games.

The current support staff comprising Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar were given a 45-day extension following the World Cup, covering the ongoing West Indies tour from August 3 to September 3. However, he was sacked soon after completing a year in the wake of the Caribbean side's dismal campaign at the 2016 T20 World Cup in India.

Former team manager Lalchand Rajput has also thrown his hat in the ring for the job of the Indian cricket team's head coach.

It remains to be seen whether Shastri will be given a chance to continue with the role or the CAC chooses a new coach for Team India.
