The meeting between the Indian and Pakistani cricket administrators will take place in Dubai, according to India Today.

Though Sehwag has denied being contacted by BCCI officials, the ace cricketer can be a good contender for this position.

Speaking to the media at Lahore airport, Shahryar Khan said that Pakistan is standing by its agreement to play series against India. Also, the next contract is likely to run until the 2019 World Cup, so even the length of the contract has to be taken into consideration before appointing the coach.

In case you didn't know.

"PCB Chairman, Shaharyar Khan, Najam Sethi and chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmad is representing Pakistan at the meeting which is being attended by BCCI officials and a member of the interim committee in India", one source said.


Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting believes that Rahul Dravid should be appointed as India's next head coach.

Also, Sehwag has recently played the role of a mentor with Kings XI Punjab, who finished fifth in the IPL 10.

. Due to the rising issues between coach and cricketing body, the latter chose to open up applications for the post of the coach of the national side.

The panel consists of former cricket players Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman to select a head coach. According to the 42-year-old, the legendary India batsman's experience will come in handy, as well as the fact that he is now coaching India A, the country's Under-19 side and the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

It seemed a mere formality that Kumble's contract will be renewed when the time came but things have gone out of plan as far as India's leading Test wicket-taker is concerned.

"We have incurred losses of up to 100,000 dollars", he said adding that PCB would first serve a notice to the BCCI and then go to ICC's dispute resolution committee before moving the court.
