The BCCI CEO has written the letter in order to begin the hiring process for the coach of the Indian Cricket team. 

Mail has been sent to all three of them to submit their declaration as soon as possible because the last date of applying for the post of the head coach is now over and we have to appoint someone as the coach, that's why the mail has been sent. We expect that they will submit it soon," a BCCI source told ANI.

According to an ANI report, it had learned on Wednesday that the appointment procedure for the new Indian Cricket team coach may get delayed as the recently formed CAC had not provided the undertaking of conflict of interest.
