In a recent development coming in, a former Indian bowler has shown his interest in the Indian cricket team head coach role. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently started accepting applications for the lucrative position since current coach Rahul Dravid's contract is set to run out soon. 

Veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has enjoyed an illustrious career in the tricolour and is now all motivated to don the coaching role if given an opportunity. 

Harbhajan also highlighted that coaching the Men in Blue is more about team management than teaching players technical skills.

Speaking about his ambitions, Harbhajan said, "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."
