Anil KumbleFormer India cricketers Anil Kumble, Pravin Amre and Lalchand Rajput made their respective presentations as the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s three-member cricket advisory committee held interviews to select a new coach at a city hotel in Kolkata on Tuesday.

Kumble, Amre and Rajput met the panel, comprising Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar, the latter joining in via video conference from London.

- VOTE! Who should take over as India's coach?

Former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale, who is 'coordinator' of the selection process, assisted the trio.

It was learnt that former India team director Ravi Shastri, the other high-profile candidate for the job, was also interviewed via video conference as he is away.

The BCCI received 57 applications from both India and overseas, from which the list was trimmed to 21.

The committee is expected to forward its recommendations to the BCCI president by June 22 and finalise the candidate by June 24.
