Anil Kumble has re-applied for the post of the Indian cricket team's coach, according to a report in a leading cricket website. 

Kumble, who has had great success with the Indian team in his one-year term, is in the fray along with Australian Tom Moody, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag, Afghanistan coach Lalchand Rajput, former Pakistan coach Richard Pybus and ex-Indian medium-pacer Dodda Ganesh. All the six candidates will be interviewed by the cricket advisory committee (CAC) comprising Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and V.V.S. Laxman.

Former Australian pacer Craig McDermott's application landed after the deadline of May 31 and it remains to be seen whether he will be interviewed. 

The new coach will be picked before the end of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy as the Indian team will embark on a tour of the West Indies soon after the event.

Kumble re-applying for the job means that the CAC will speak to both Indian captain Virat Kohli and Kumble to sort out the differences and if possible continue what has been a hugely successful partnership.
