As Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer claim they rejected India Coach Job BCCI Secretary gave his statement.

On Friday, the secretary of BCCI, Jay Shah, rejected claims that the board has approached any former cricketer from Australia to be the next head coach of team India and hinted that Rahul Dravid's successor could be an Indian by saying that he should have a "deep understanding" of the game's structure in the country. 
In a statement, Shah said, "Neither I nor the BCCI have approached any former Australian cricketer with a coaching offer. The reports circulating in certain media sections are completely incorrect.”
Both Ponting and Langer are involved in the Indian Premier League as the head coaches of the Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants, respectively. World Cup-winning former batting star Gautam Gambhir, who is currently mentoring the Kolkata Knight Riders, is speculated to be among the top contenders for the post right now.
Shah further said, "Finding the right coach for our national team is a meticulous and thorough process. We are focused on identifying individuals who possess a deep understanding of the Indian cricket structure and have risen through the ranks.”
