The candidates were asked to submit their applications before 21 July.

"The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would like to call upon interested candidates to apply for the position of the Team Manager for the senior India men's cricket team," the advertisement on the board's website read.

"The appointment of a Team Manager shall be for a minimum period of one year."

One of the main criterion the board has asked is the candidate should have played good level of cricket, preferably first class or at international level.

"The candidates who have (i) successfully managed a cricket team of any of the affiliated units of BCCI or the national teams, at the first class or at the International level, or (ii) have a minimum of ten years of work experience in public/private sector, will be preferred."

The board also wanted a candidate below the age of 60 years with the ability to withstand the rigours of the international cricket schedule of the team.
