The deadline for applications for the head coach position of the Indian cricket team has passed, and it has been reported that no top foreign names have applied for the role. This comes as a surprise to many, as there was speculation that some renowned international coaches may throw their hat in the ring.

One of the top contenders for the job was former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman, but it has been confirmed that he is not interested in taking up the coaching role at this time. Another former cricketer, Gautam Gambhir, has also reportedly expressed a lack of interest in the position.

The head coach of the Indian cricket team holds a prestigious and high-pressure position, responsible for shaping the team’s performance and strategy on the field. With the current coach, Ravi Shastri, set to step down after the T20 World Cup later this year, the search for his successor has been a topic of much discussion and anticipation.

The lack of top foreign names applying for the position may come as a surprise to some, as the Indian cricket team boasts an impressive track record and a huge fan base worldwide. The opportunity to coach such a high-profile team would undoubtedly be appealing to many top coaches in the international circuit.

It remains to be seen who will eventually fill the shoes of Ravi Shastri as the head coach of the Indian cricket team. With the application deadline now closed and no top foreign names in the running, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will have to evaluate the candidates who have applied and make a decision on the best fit for the role.

As the search for the new head coach continues, cricket enthusiasts and experts will be eagerly awaiting updates on the selection process and the eventual appointment of the new coach. It is a crucial decision that will have a significant impact on the future of the Indian cricket team and its performance on the global stage.
