Team India Coach| From Narendra Modi to Shahrukh Khan, these fake applications came for the head coach of Team India

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is looking for a suitable candidate for the post of India’s head coach (men). The BCCI has received more than 3,000 applications for this one post. However, according to The Indian Express, many of the applications received by the BCCI are also made under fake names.

Actually, there are many applications received by BCCI in which applications have been made in the name of many former cricketers, politicians, actors. Fake applicants have applied in the name of Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni. BCCI has faced the problem of fake applicants before as well. Earlier in the year 2022 also when BCCI looked for a new head coach, they received about 5,000 fake applications under celebrity names. Well, the applications received in the name of celebrities were fake. Earlier, the candidates had to send their application by email. This time BCCI has used Google Form. Last year also, BCCI had received such feedback where fraudsters had applied and this time also the story is the same. According to the information, the reason for BCCI inviting applications on Google Form is that it is easy to check the names of the applicants in a sheet.

Let us tell you that to be eligible to replace Rahul Dravid, it is mandatory for someone to play at least 30 Test matches or 50 ODIs. Along with this, one has to coach a full-member Test playing nation for at least two years. There were sharp reactions on social media after the BCCI used Google Form to seek applications. Many were upset that job applications for such a high-profile post were sought through Google Form, while others reacted with memes and sarcastic comments.

Doctor with street cricket experience
A doctor with experience in gully cricket has claimed to have applied for the post and justified his qualifications in a ridiculous post. This person wrote I have played gully cricket in my school years. My balls were unplayable, I mean, the balls I bowled were unplayable because they never reached the stumps at the batsman’s end. I was also a stylish batsman. Sun hat, shades, chewing gum, sunscreen, a red handkerchief sticking out of my trouser pocket… the job, you see, wrote a user on social media.
