Presently, MSK Prasad is the Chairman of India's senior selection committee but questions have been raised about the panel's efficiency with former greats like Sunil Gavaskar terming the Prasad-led selection committee as "lame ducks".
Kumble has the experience of 132 Tests and 271 ODIs behind him and has been associated with Team India as coach as well after retirement. "He is someone who has interacted with Sachin (Tendulkar), Sourav (Ganguly) and Rahul (Dravid) as a player and with current crop of youngsters as a coach", Sehwag told the media at a promotional event in New Delhi on Wednesday (August 21).
The former India opener recalled Kumble's words when he was trying to make a comeback into the side in Australia.
"When Anil Kumble became the captain, he came to my room and said "go and play how you play as in the next two series you won't be dropped".
Sehwag felt that selectors need to have good knowledge of the game to take hard decisions and Kumble was the ideal candidate.

As far as Kumble is concerned, Sehwag feels that he won't agree to take up the position as the chairman of selectors gets only Rs 1 crore per annum. However, selectors are not allowed to appear as TV commentators, write newspaper columns or coach sides due to BCCI's stringent "conflict of interest" rules in the new constitution.
Virender Sehwag (Credits - AFP)"BCCI needs to raise bar as far as pay is concerned". He is also deterred by the fact that he writes columns, appears on TV shows and other events now.
Sehwag had previously applied for the India coach job after the 2015 World Cup but when asked whether he was still interested in becoming a coach in the future, he replied in the negative. "I don't know whether I would like so many restrictions", the 40-year-old said. However, Sehwag didn't apply this time around. "No one asked me to apply this time and by 2021 I don't know if I will apply".
"In 2017, the BCCI secretary and (late) Dr MV Sridhar (GM Cricket Operations) asked me to apply so I applied".
Reflecting on the same, Sehwag said, "If MS Dhoni had come up to bat against New Zealand, the situation could have been different".
"Players like Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant can play big shots towards the end of the innings and can chase down totals even when 8 runs per over are needed". However, it was not right to expose them when the ball was moving around. If players won't do things for cricket, who will? The problem with whereabouts is I can't pinpoint where I will be at a specific hour of the day on a specific date. I also don't think any player has talked about it. I may mention it initially and then I might have a change in plan.
