However, the current post holders will be granted an automatic entry in the recruitment process.

Interested candidates should send their application(s) on or before July 30, 2019 by 5 pm at email@example.com. The current coaching staff of Team India (Senior Men) will get an automatic entry in the recruitment process.
Pertinent to note, that the decision of the BCCI for the said position, will remain final and binding," BCCI said via a press release.
The support staff comprising Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar were given a 45-day extension following the World Cup, covering the West Indies tour from August 3 to September 3.
All of them can reapply but the team is set to have a new trainer and physio after the departure of Shankar Basu and Patrick Farhart respectively following India's semifinal exit in the World Cup.

Shastri was appointed India chief coach in 2017 after Anil Kumble's tenure ended prematurely in controversial circumstances.
The 57-year-old was also India's director of cricket from August 2014 to June 2016.
