The deadline for applying for the job is before July 21, 2017 and the selected person, who should be below 60 years of age, will be joining the team for a term of one year.
The minimum criteria for application has been kept at someone who has played cricket before at the first class or international level and has “successfully managed a cricket team of any of the affiliated units of BCCI or the national teams, at the first class or at the International level, or have a minimum of ten years of work experience in public/private sector, will be preferred.”
The board also said that the candidate should have successfully cleared a graduate program conducted by a recognised university but a masters degree is desirable.
Other conditions that the board asked for are that the candidate should be comfortable with and possess a good understanding of latest technologies sports software and ability to utilise the same, is desirable.
