Former Team India coach and South African cricketer Gary Kirsten has applied for the position of head coach of the Indian women’s team.

Kirsten has previously coached the Indian men's cricket team winning the 2011 World Cup with the side. He also has coached the South Africa men's cricket team winning coach. According to the reports, Kirsten has sent his application and is set to appear in front of the three-member ad hoc panel set up by BCCI.

Kirtsten applied after making an enquiry on the vacant post before sending his application, said Times of India. The report further said that even Kings XI Punjab coach Mike Hesson had made an enquiry for the post.

Other applicants for the post include Atul Bedade, David Johnson, Rakesh Sharma, Manoj Prabhakar, Owais Shah, Herschelle Gibbs, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Dominic Thornely, Gargi Banerjee, Vidyuth Jaisimha, Ramesh Powar, Colin Siller and Dav Whatmore.

Former India cricketers Shantha Rangaswamy, Kapil Dev and Anshuman Gaekwad will interview the candidate. BCCI is expected to name the new coach before the New Zealand tour begins on January 24.

Ramesh Powar was appointed as interim coach in August after Tushar Arothe quit following differences with the senior players over training methods.
