Virender Sehwag has sent a ‘two-line resume’ to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) while applying for the Indian cricket team coach’s job, according to media reports.

Instead of sending a detailed Curriculum Vitae (CV), Sehwag is learnt to have sent an application mentioning his role as mentor with Kings XI Punjab in the IPL and his familiarity with the current Indian team players, having played with them.

The BCCI has asked Sehwag to send a detailed application with a full CV. The current Indian national team coach Anil Kumble’s contract ends after the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy. Other than Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Dodda Ganesh and Lalchand Rajput have applied for the job.

A three-member BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and V. V. S. Laxman will conduct the coach’s interviews.
