Mumbai: The Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) will interview six shortlisted candidates - Mike Hesson, Tom Moody, Robin Singh, Lalchand Rajput, Phil Simmons and Ravi Shastri - for India's head coach's job at the BCCI headquarters on Friday. This consists of former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson, ex-Australia all-rounder and Sri Lanka coach Tom Moody, former West Indies all-rounder and Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons, ex-India team manager Lalchand Rajput, former India fielding coach Robin Singh and the incumbent head coach, Ravi Shastri.

The Board had received over 2,000 applications for different coaching positions with the Indian team, with the contracts of the current staff having run out after the 2019 World Cup, and an extension being granted only for the ongoing tour of the US and the West Indies.

Former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri, who is the current coach of the Indian men's cricket team, appeared in a total of 150 ODIs and 80 Test matches for the national side before a knee injury started affecting his game and he decide to bid adieu to cricket at the age of 30.

Besides this, Robin has also been coaching Team Mumbai in the IPL since joining the franchise in 2010. Ravi Shastri is now on a tour of the West Indies. Later, as head coach, he transformed Otago into a unit which regularly competed for domestic titles. He then joined as Western Warriors head coach back in 2007 and took up the position as Kings XI Punjab in the inaugural season of the IPL.

Shastri got an automatic entry into the selection process.

Since his retirement from all forms of cricket in 2004, the former India all-rounder has been extensively involved in coaching.

The 44-year-old was described by former captain Brendon McCullum as "the best coach the Black Caps have ever had" - guided the team to new heights across all three formats.

After a disastrous first stint with Zimbabwe in 2007, he took over the Ireland team which had made noise by upsetting Pakistan and qualifying for the Super Eights at their World Cup debut. With Ireland, he was at the helm during their most successful wins including the upset win over England at the 2007 and 2011 World Cup.

Internationally, he has coached the Afghanistan and Zimbabwe teams. A year later, he saw himself become the head coach of the Indian cricket team for the first time - for a period of two years. He appeared in just four ODIs and two Tests for the national side. More recently, he was named as the coach of the Montreal Tigers franchise team for the 2019 Global T20 Canada tournament. he has also been the director of cricket at the Caribbean Premier League.

Although Rajput has experience with the Afghanistan and Zimbabwe team, he doesn't have the experience of coaching a top Test nation. He is now serving as the head coach of the Zimbabwe cricket team after being appointed in the role in August 2018.
