New Delhi:A day after the formation of a seven-member panel to pick a new Team India coach and Manager, BCCI on Tuesday disclosed it would appoint them for a tenure of two years.

The Board said it was yet to zero in on possible candidates for the post after the World Cup final amid reports that Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore or Lankan coach Tom Moody might corner the high-profile job.

''We have formed a panel under Board president Sharad Pawar with three former captains (Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri and Venkat Raghavan) and office bearers.

''We will start working immediately after the World Cup and appoint a new manager and coach for a tenure of two years,'' BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah, who is currently in Kingston, told NDTV.

''We will see who all are available for the job after the World Cup is over. The entire process will start only after the World Cup gets over,'' he said.
