Former Indian legendary trio Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid will reportedly be part of the committee that will hunt for India's new coach after Duncan Fletcher.

Fletcher's contract ran out after the recently concluded ICC World Cup 2015. The trio will chip in with their valuable suggestions to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Jagmohan Dalmiya and Secretary Anurag Thakur, who were given the job to find a new coach for India on Sunday.

"The process to identify the coach and support staff for the Senior National team will be undertaken by the Hon. President and the Hon. Secretary," said a BCCI press release.

India's assistant coaches Sanjay Bangar, Bharath Arun and R Sridhar is likely to retain their duty. There has been rumours about Ganguly becoming the new coach of India, but a Working Committee member confirmed that Ganguly will not be contesting for the position.

"Since Sourav will be in the Committee, he at least technically does not qualify for the job," the member said.

The committee also authorised the BCCI president to form an advisory committee comprising prominent cricketers who would come up with ideas of how the game can be developed and how to improve the overall conduct of the game. The committee also paid homage to deceased cricketers Ankit Keshri from West Bengal, Gaurav Kumar from Jharkhand, and the others who were killed in the Nepal earthquake.
