Mumbai:The Indian Cricket Board's (BCCI) six-member special committee, chaired by its President Ranbir Singh Mahendra, would interview four candidates at New Delhi on May 19 in its endeavour to appoint the new national coach.

The four in the running to take over the mantle are Australians Greg Chappell and Tom Moody, India's Mohinder Amarnath and West Indian Desmond Haynes who have all confirmed to attend the interview, BCCI Secretary and Convenor of the special committee, S K Nair, said in a statement today from Thiruvanathapuram.

Sandeep Patil, among the four short-listed by the BCCI's special committee at its meeting in Kolkata last Sunday, and former England off spinner John Emburey -- who had alsobeen approached -- have expressed their inability to take up the job because of their current coaching assignments, Nair said.

The names of Haynes and Emburey had not been revealed earlier after the meeting of the BCCI's special committee which only said that some others - all from overseas - werealso being approached apart from the short-listed names: Greg Chappell, Moody, Amarnath and Patil.

The special committee comprises Mahendra, Nair, former BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya and three ex-Test cricketers -Sunil Gavaskar, Srinivas Venkatraghavan and Ravi Shastri.
