Harbhajan Singh shows interest in coaching Indian cricket team as Rahul Dravid’s exit looms | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has expressed his interest in coaching the Indian cricket team if given the opportunity.
He believes that coaching the Men in Blue is more about team management than teaching players technical skills. Harbhajan stated, “I do not know if I would apply. Coaching India is about man management, not about teaching players how to drive and pull.They know it very well. You can give some guidance to them. Cricket has given me so much and If I get a chance to give it back, I would be more than happy.”
The BCCI recently invited applications for the position of head coach of the Senior Men’s Team, with the tenure starting from July 1, 2023, and concluding on December 31, 2027, which coincides with the next 50-over Cricket World Cup. The current head coach, Rahul Dravid, was given an extension until June, which includes the ICC T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA from June 1 to 29.
The selection process for the new head coach will involve a thorough review of applications, followed by personal interviews and assessments of shortlisted candidates.
The BCCI has set out specific qualifications for potential head coaches, including a minimum of 30 Test Matches or 50 ODI’s played, or experience as a head coach of a full member Test playing nation for a minimum of 2 years, among other requirements.
India are placed in Group A of the T20 World Cup this year, alongside Pakistan, Ireland, Canada, and co-hosts USA. They will begin their campaign against Ireland on June 5 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York, followed by the highly anticipated match against Pakistan on June 9 at the same venue. India will then face the USA and Canada on June 12 and 15, respectively.
