Tendulkar, who could not be present in Kolkata, attended the meeting via video conference.
“I have made my presentation already. Let’s see what happens. Sachin was not here but we had a word via video conference,” Amre told reporters in Kolkata.

Current chairman of selectors Sandeep Patil was reportedly not called for the interview.
