After being removed from the post of Anil Kumble, Virender Sehwag, like Ravi Shastri, had applied for a coach. However, the selection committee, comprising the likes of Sourav, Sachin, and Lahman, chose Ravi Shastri as the coach.
The reason behind this could not be the coach of India’s former opening opener
Sehwag has not been in agreement with the BCCI’s cricket advisory committee members for not being able to become a coach of the Indian media. His claim, ‘The only reason I could not be my coach was that there was no compromise with those who were selecting the coach. ‘
Regarding the application of the Indian team’s coach, Sehwag said, “I never thought of being the coach of the Indian team. But I was offered a coach. BCCI’s acting secretary Amitav Chowdhury and the new development MV Sridhar came to me to look into the proposal to be a coach. So I applied for the coaching session.
Former Indian batsman Ravi Shastri has also taken a hand in the batting. Sehwag said, “During the Champions Trophy in England, I asked Ravi Shastri why did not he apply for coaching? Shastri tells me not to repeat the mistake she once made. If Shastri applied earlier, I would not apply anymore.
