More than 25 candidates have applied for the various coaching assignments in Sri Lanka, it is learnt.

According to the information gathered from the reliable source in Sri Lanka, 20 people are local, who have responded to the advertisement which the SLC (Sri Lanka Cricket) board had advertised for the various coaching positions. Most of them were recently involved in the franchise teams coaching in the Lanka Premier League (LPL).

There have been other 7-8 foreigners who too have shown interest, not necessarily all of them have applied for the senior men team's head coaching but even for the other teams.

"Will begin the interview process next week or immediately in the New Year", Aravinda de Silva, the head of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), speaking exclusively over the telephone from Colombo, said on Sunday morning.

"Two members from our committee, who are available on the day/days of interviews will join Mahela Jayawardene in the process", he added.

"Will also seek Tom Moody's views", the chairman added.

Tom Moody has a contract with the SLC as Cricket Director.

Aravinda didn't specify it but it is believed that Mahela is likely to favor Sri Lankan coaches. Only the head coach for the senior men's team may be a foreigner.
