Mumbai: Former Australian Test player and coach Geoff Marsh will be interviewed here on Tuesday for the Indian team's coaching assignment, the Board of Control for Cricket in India announced on Monday. He is arriving late-evening on Monday.Marsh is supposed to be the best choice among the three candidates - the others being former Kiwi captain John Wright and former great Aussie batsman and captain Greg Chappell. Marsh is the only one to have an experience of coaching a national side.Australia became the World Cup champions and won a string of Tests under him before he suddenly quit citing family reasons. However, his terms are the most expensive.Though he was the first to make a bid for the coach's slot after senior cricketers Saurav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble expressed the desire for a foreign hand, he withdrew only to subsequently change his mind. Chappell and Wright then were interviewed at Chennai last week for which BCCI bigwigs president Dr A C Muthiah, secretary J Y Lele and former boss Raj Singh Dungarpur returned from Sharjah and flew back. All three are now in town as interviewers but will not make any announcement.According to a BCCI spokesman the three will then share the details with some senior Board members, who are gathering here on Thursday for a marketing meeting.
