These are 6 possible names for Indian cricket team's next head coach

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had earlier announced that it will begin the process for new applicants after Kumble's tenure expires following the conclusion of the ICC Champions Trophy. Such an approach, the official said, "had not gone down well" with the players who are used to a more relaxed dressing room.

Incidentally, Messrs Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman had hand-picked Kumble past year, overlooking the claims of Ravi Shastri, who'd been heading the support staff as team director. The members of the Indian team are not happy with the way Kumble is functioning, especially his hard task attitude.

The players are unhappy with Kumble's man-management skills and one BCCI official has even termed Kumble as a "headmaster" at a school.

As the Champions Trophy kicks off today, the question on everyone's mind is not so much about whether India will be able to defend their title but who is going to be the next coach of the Indian cricket team.

Choudhary defended the decision to invite applications for the coaching job days before the Champions Trophy.

One of India's biggest match-winners and a part of two- time World Cup winning team, Sehwag played 104 Tests and 251 ODIs for India scoring 8586 and 8273 runs respectively. The official said that the reason Kumble has been successful was because "the team has been successful" playing cricket mostly at home. "Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) is seized of the matter and will deal with it", Chaudhary said. "The way the cricket set-up works in India is the coach is not the king".

As India gets ready to launch their tournament against Pakistan in Birmingham on Sunday, the Indian media is abuzz with reports of differences between Kohli and Kumble over tactics and training. Virender Sehwag and Lalchand Rajput have applied while Anil Kumble is a direct entrant.

"I don't see anything very different from what has happened in the past". Apparently Sachin Tendulkar, who is a part of the Cricket Advisory Committee that appointed Kumble to the post in June previous year, tried to build bridges between the two, but Kohli didn't sway from his stand.

"So in my view, what the BCCI is doing is following procedure", the former India captain said.

The secretary dismissed suggestions that he and BCCI General Manager (Cricket Operations) M.V. Sridhar had arrived to engage in discussions with Kumble.
