The six candidates are Mike Hesson, Tom Moody, Phil Simmons, Lalchand Rajput, Robin Singh and the current head coach Ravi Shastri, who was automatically included in the running. After shortlisting the candidates, BCCI on Monday informed all the six shortlisted candidates about the interview date and time.

Meanwhile, the support staff of the team (batting, bowling and fielding coaches) will be picked by chief selector MSK Prasad.

Amongst the other candidates, Moody, a former Australian all-rounder, has been a coach with the Sunrisers Hyderabad for the past six years. They won the title under him in 2016, and were the runners-up in 2018. Ex-India team manager Lalchand Rajput has coached India, India A, Afghanistan and is with Zimbabwe currently.
