Venkatesh Prasad expresses desire to be part of Team India's support staff

Ganguly is one of the three members of the CAC alongside Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman

The board is eager to give Team India a ideal replacement of Anil Kumble, and they have asked for more applications for the post of team's head coach. Earlier, though many legendaries like Ravi Shastri had applied, the position was granted to the former ace bowler Anil Kumble.

"I have made my intentions clear that I am very, very keen to perform the role of an assistant coach or a bowling coach", said Prasad to Firstpost. In a rather suggestive tweet, the brother of Sanjiv Goenka who is the IPL team owner which is expected to be defunct as a two year ban on Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings is about to be lifted from the upcoming season, Goenka wrote, "Pl apply for Indian cricket coach". However, it will be interesting to see how CAC member Sourav Ganguly deals with the former India all-rounder's candidature after the differences emerged between the two cricketers during last year's interview process, in which the latter was edged out by Kumble. Before Shastri entered the race this week, Sehwag and Moody were considered to be the favourites. "And I would like to contribute immensely with all the experience that I have got of playing and coaching".

The 47-year-old is the latest applicant after Ravi Shastri, who applied for the post on June 27.

Shastri, back then stated that he is going to apply for the post only if he is definitely granted with the position.

Prasad is now serving his final year as the chairman of the junior selection committee, which ends this September.

The report also states that the Committee of Administrators (CoA) wasn't too pleased with the manner in which the Anil Kumble-Virat Kohli rift was handled. If the CoA was more proactive, Kumble wouldn't have been insulted by the captain in front of three top Board officials.

Also, the BCCI CEO didn't let CoA know anything about extending the deadline to apply for the India coach to July 9 too.

"If it was done to suit Shastri, it won't go down well with Viru, who, we must remember, was asked to apply in the first place".
