VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar are the other members of the CAC. Every coach has different style of working, so we want to discuss it with Virat and other board members. "That's the best way forward".

Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has offered his support to former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Anurag Thakur, saying that Indian cricket needs him back.

Ganguly said that former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri, who was the team director of the Indian men's cricket team from August 2014 to April 2016, former India opener Virender Sehwag, former Australian all-rounder Tom Moody, current Afghanistan coach Lalchand Rajput and former Pakistan and Bangladesh coach and director of West Indies cricket Richard Pybus were all interviewed on Monday. Only Sehwag arrived at the BCCI headquarters to make his presentation in person while the others, including Shastri who is presently in the United Kingdom, participated through Skype.

Sehwag was the only candidate who was physically present for the interview, while the rest spoke via Skype. "We don't want to see six months down the line, things to go wrong", he added.

Those in the know of things told TOI that Shastri and Moody made the most impressive presentations during their interviews.

The rule would allow borrowers to have their loans forgiven if a state has successfully taken action against a for-profit school. With Corinthian's breakdown, this system was overwhelmed with over 15,000 loans being wiped away totaling $247 million.

"The process is concluded". If Kohli disagrees with the CAC's choice will they go with his preference or would Kohli be the one make the final selection.

Ganguly hinted that the coach will be picked before the Sri Lanka tour that begins with the first Test on July 26. "Once he (Kohli), the members of the team are on the same page", Ganguly added.

"We feel there is no hurry at the moment", Ganguly said on Monday in Mumbai. We are not only looking at the Sri Lanka tour because Sri Lanka is a long tour.

Addressing the press after the over four-hour process, Ganguly said that the panel had not finalised their selection, but was impressed with the interactions they had with each of the candidates.

"We need to explain to Kohli and his team that coaches want to function a certain way, and we need to make it clear", insisted Ganguly.
