Virender Sehwag forwards two-line resume, BCCI demands a elaborate version

Mumbai: Virender Sehwag has reportedly pulled off a Virender Sehwag as he applied for the post of Team India head coach.

In this outstanding CV, Sehwag mentioned that he was a mentor of the Kings XI Punjab and was familiar with the current talent on Indian cricket. Sehwag originally had sent his application in only two lines.

An official of BCCI has informed that there was no cv attached to the application. We had to ask him to send his CV too along with his application. "It will the first time he will be appearing for an interview". Besides Sehwag, other applicants for the job are: Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput, Doda Ganesh, Richard Pybus and Kumble himself.

Kumble was appointed coach by a committee that comprised of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman and he's one year term is coming to an end soon. Current incumbent Anil Kumble's name is also in the fray as a direct entry, but will have to undergo the interview process all over again. The former World Cup victor, however, said that all the necessary procedure were done on time and he had sent his application well before time.

What does the Aussie cricket team do during rain delays? There were also reports of former Australian pacer Craig McDermott applying for the high profile job.

Meanwhile Sehwag, who was in Edgbaston, in the United Kingdom, as a Hindi commentator for the India vs Pakistan match, has flown back to India.

He though had earlier told that he was keen to coach India, "I have had aspirations for a while to be a head coach", he told.

The decision came under scrutiny by a lot of former cricketers who felt that Kumble should continue as coach.

McDermott, who took 291 wickets in 71 Tests for the Aussies, was Australia's bowling coach for two years until the World T20 last year before he opted not to renew his deal with the national side.
