Though Sehwag has denied being contacted by BCCI officials, the ace cricketer can be a good contender for this position.

The two arch-rivals last participated in a bilateral series in December 2012 when Pakistan visited India for a limited overs series that included three One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 internationals.

The next contract is likely to run until the 2019 World Cup.

If the media reports are to be believed, the board is not happy with the current head coach Kumble following which he is not being given an extension. "If Indian cricket board does not budge then the matter will be taken to International Cricket Council (ICC)", he added. According to the 42-year-old, the legendary India batsman's experience will come in handy, as well as the fact that he is now coaching India A, the country's Under-19 side and the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL). If he does apply for the role of the coach of the Indian team, he will have to go through a rigorous selection process.

The entire process of selecting the coach will be overlooked by the Rahul Johri, who is the CEO of the BCCI. BCCI has already started the process to look for Team India's new coach and even invited applications for the same, as Kumble's contract will expire post Champions Trophy 2017.

Kumble has taken India to great heights during his tenure as coach and his credibility should not be questioned by the BCCI.
