The selection panel interviewed 16 candidates for the physio's role of the Indian cricket role, and 12 other individuals for the position of strength and conditioning coach at Mumbai on Wednesday. The new support staff will hold their job for two years - from the upcoming series against South Africa till the end of the T20 World Cup in 2021. 

After former coaches Patrick Farhat and Shankar Basu had decided not to extend their contracts as physio and mental coach respectively, the BCCI had the job of looking for a new coaching set-up. Ravi Shastri has already been re-appointed as head coach, with the selection committee looking to finalize the other roles as well, including that of batting and bowling coach. 

The selection process had started on Monday, when the committee, led by MSK Prasad, interviewed 14 candidates for the batting coach, including current coach Sanjay Bangar. However, it is unlikely that he will continue, with Praveen Ambre likely to replace him. 

On Tuesday, the panel got together to interview 12 aspirants for the job of bowling coach. Current coach Bharat Arun is likely to continue, after India has made rapid strides in the fast bowling department under him in the last few years.

The fielding coach's position was up for grabs as well, with current coach R Sridhar and former South African legend Jonty Rhides in the fray. 

On Thursday, 25 people will be interviewed for the role of manager of the team. The final list of the support staff will be made public on Thursday as well.
