BCCI invites fresh applications for Indian team support staff
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has called upon interested candidates to apply for several positions of the coaching and support staff, including head coach, bowling coach, fielding coach, physiotherapist, strength and conditioning coach and an administrative manager.
The interested candidates are expected to apply on or before 5 pm on July 30.
This announcement comes right after the tenures of Shanker Basu (strength and conditioning coach) and Patrick Farhart (team physio) came to an end after India’s defeat to New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup semifinal, and they parted ways.
For the likes of Ravi Shastri, Sanjay Bangar and Bharat Arun – the key members of the incumbent backroom staff, there is an automatic entry into the recruitment process.
Shastri came in as Anil Kumble’s successor after the 2017 Champions Trophy, as did bowling coach Bharat Arun. Batting coach Sanjay Bangar has been in his post for longer, having been appointed along with Kumble for the four away Tests in West Indies in 2016.
