    Everyone is queueing up to be India's cricket coach

    Once it became public knowledge that Wright was quitting as coach of the Indian team, it was always going to be a case of several applicants for one post. Despite Greg Chappell's clarifications, he remains a front-runner because he has the skipper's backing. Yesterday, Dav Whatmore threw his hat into the ring when he talked to BBC Sport about the fact that he was interested in the job after his contract with Bangladesh expired at the end of the month.

    Now Tom Moody, who had expressed interest in the England job earlier, says that Wright asked him, to borrow a phrase from Raj Singh Dungarpur, "Mian, coach banoge". It only gets murkier when you consider Moody's statement expressing interested in heading the ECB's National Academy!

    Chandrahas Choudhury is left attempting to analyze the contenders and provide an answer.

    I wonder if Ganguly would like to coach. I think that will provide the greatest benefit to the greatest number. He can do what he is best at -- man management and motivation. He will still be an integral part of Indian cricket. Finally, he would know, better than any prospective candidate, how to take Wright's legacy one step further, and he'll make a lot of Indians happy by not playing in the team:)
