Pakistani all-rounder Wasim Akram, former India batsman Pravin Amre and ex-India coach John Wright will make presentations for the Kolkata Knight Riders coach's post in Mumbai on August 30.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who is tipped to return as the skipper of the side, said the trio would be interviewed on August 30 in Mumbai.

Talking to PTI on the sideline of his shooting for the TV reality show 'Dadagiri', Ganguly said nothing had been finalised yet.

"Akram is part of the final few coaches who have been called on August 30.

"He along with (John) Wright and (Pravin) Amre have been called. I would also go to Mumbai that time," Ganguly said.

Incidentally, Akram is learnt to be less keen on a full-time coach's job and would like to work as a consultant.

The Knight Riders management has already interviewed the likes of Australia batsman Michael Bevan and former England player Dermot Reeves for the job.

Among the Indians, former Indian batsmen WV Raman, Ashok Malhotra and Lalchand Rajput have given their presentations in front of principal owner Shah Rukh Khan, co-owner Jay Mehta and Ganguly earlier this week.

According to a Knight Riders insider, the team was looking for a blend of Indian and foreign coaching panel.
