New Delhi: The BCCI's chairman of selectors Sandeep Patil has probably become the first big name to submit his application for the post of Indian cricket coach.

“Yes, I have applied for Indian team coach job,” Sandeep Patil told The Indian Express.

Patil, who has coaching experience thanks to stints with Kenyan national team and various age-group Indian teams, took over as chairman of selectors in September 2012, and his four-year term is about to end.

He will be one of the many candidates in contention for the top job. The report also claimed that selector Vikram Rathour, Pravin Amre, Lalchand Rajput and Hrishikesh Kanitkar are all set to apply for the post.

Even Ravi Shashtri, whose tenure as team director ended recently, is likely to submit his application sooner than later.
