Ramprakash, Trott Among Candidates for India's Batting Coach


Former England batsmen Mark Ramprakash and Jonathan Trott have emerged as high-profile candidates for the role of India's batting coach as the BCCI interviews numerous aspirants to appoint support staff this week.


 The board has started the recruitment process to find batting, bowling and fielding coaches for the men's team and the interviews are scheduled to take place from Monday to Thursday.

Ramprakash and Trott are understood to have been interviewed along with other candidates that include Thilan Samaraweera, Pravin Amre, Amol Muzumdar, Hrishikesh Kanitkar and Vikram Rathour. Former South Africa batsman Jonty Rhodes, who was the fielding coach of Mumbai Indians in the IPL until recently, and Ant Botha, who represented South Africa Under-19s before moving to England, have applied for the post of fielding coach. For the bowling coach position, Venkatesh Prasad, Sunil Joshi, Amit Bhandari and Paras Mhambrey are understood to have applied.

The contracts of the head coach and the assistant coaches ended after the World Cup in July before they were all given extensions for the ongoing tour of the USA and the West Indies. The BCCI has since extended Ravi Shastri's contract as head coach for another two years.
