New Delhi. The search for the head coach of the Indian cricket team is going on. Many names are coming forward for this responsibility. Meanwhile, Justin Langer has refused to become the head coach of the Indian team. Ricky Ponting has already rejected this role. Various types of news are coming regarding Stephen Fleming's claim. After the T20 World Cup, the tenure of Indian coach Rahul Dravid is coming to an end.

The last date of application for the new coach of the Indian cricket team is 27th May. Among the names that have come forward so far for this, Gautam Gambhir seems to be at the forefront. Apart from Gambhir, names of Australia's Ricky Ponting, Justin Langer and New Zealand's Stephen Fleming are also included in this race.

On the question of becoming the Indian coach, Justin Langer clearly said in the BBC Stumped podcast that he would not like to take this responsibility right now. Langer said, 'It can be a great job. But I would not like to take this responsibility right now. On the question of whether he would ever want to take this responsibility, Langer said, you can never say. There is a lot of pressure regarding this responsibility in India. I once talked to KL Rahul about this. KL said that the pressure and politics that happens while coaching an IPL team is many times more than the Indian teammates.

Fleming may also reject this offer
New Zealand's Stephen Fleming was also considered to be in the race to become the new coach. Fleming is currently playing this role in the Chennai Super Kings team. CSK CEO Kashi Vishwanathan said in a podcast that Fleming would hardly want to become the coach of the Indian team. He said that Fleming does not want any such role in which he has to stay out of his country for about 10 months. He will have to do this if he becomes the coach of the Indian team. For this reason, Fleming may reject the offer to become the Indian coach.

Ponting does not want to work even for 10-11 months in a year
Ricky Ponting has also refused to become the Indian coach citing time. He told ICC, 'There was some discussion about this during IPL. Actually, I would love to become the senior coach of the national team. But I have other things in my life and I want to spend some time at home. If you work with the Indian team, it is a 10-11 month job in a year. It doesn't fit into my current lifestyle..'
