NEW DELHI: Former India seamer and bowling coach, Venkatesh Prasad, has also applied for the India head coach’s job. “I have applied this morning,” Prasad confirmed on Wednesday.
Prasad, who is chairman of the BCCI junior selection committee, is keen to get back to a coaching role. He was in charge of the bowling department when India won the inaugural 2007 ICCWorld T20.
Reportedly, Prasad is also open to becoming the bowling coach of the national team if he is not made the chief coach.
He was bowling coach of the Indian team between 2007 and 2009, and also worked with the now suspended IPL franchise CSK and RCB.
Balwinder Sandhu, member of 1983 World Cup winning squad, has also applied.
