Hesson has earlier been the coach of New Zealand and Kenya. He has also coached franchise teams like Kings XI Punjab and Otago Volts.

He managed to take New Zealand to the finals of Cricket World Cup 2015.

Three-member Cricket Advisory Committee –Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy, are expected to announce the new coach of the Indian men's cricket team later on Friday.

The interview of all the shortlisted candidates will be taking place in Mumbai for the appointment of the coach and the announcement is likely at 7 pm.

On 12 August, BCCI had shortlisted six candidates for the men's team's head coach including current Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri.

Apart from Shastri, there were two more Indians who were shortlisted for the post –former cricketers Lalchand Rajput and Robin Singh.

Other than Hesson, the only shortlisted candidate is Australia's Tom Moody, with West Indian Phil Simmons recently opting out of the interview process.
