Sourav Ganguly is a member of Cricket Advisory Committee

The Shastri sentiment is so strong in the board that some of the officials have started comparing Shastri and Anil Kumble's stints with statistics.

Hours after reports of him applying for the post of Team India head coach hit the stands, former pacer Venkatesh Prasad on Thursday cleared the air by stating that he is keen on taking up the role of the assistant coach or a bowling coach.

Top names such as former batsman Virender Sehwag and Australia's Tom Moody are already in the running for one of the toughest jobs in cricket.

Meanwhile, former India cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar wants the Indian skipper to have a say in selecting the coach. "And I would like to contribute immensely with all the experience that I have got of playing and coaching", Prasad added.

Besides, he also served as head coach of the Uttar Pradesh team and bowling coach for Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sridhar - who has been part of the Indian dressing room for three years and has worked with both Shastri and Kumble - chalks out the difference between the two greats. Prasad, who played 33 Tests and 162 ODIs in the 90s, is set to finish his three-year term as the junior India chief selector in September this year.

The report further stated that the Committee of Advisors (COA) wasn't happy with the manner in which the Anil Kumble-Virat Kohli matter was handled. "He felt let down after the episode", the source was quoted.

The deadline of the application for the India coach post is July 9.
