Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Herschelle Gibbs is reportedly interested and has applied for the head coach role of the Indian women's cricket team.

According to Times of India, Gibbs applied for the role and if shortlisted, may be interviewed by a BCCI panel headed by former Indian great Kapil Dev.

Gibbs confirmed the news via his Twitter account, writing "I've put my name forward yes.."

Former Indian bowler Manoj Prabhakar and former England batsman Owais Shah have also applied for the top role.

The deadline for the Indian women's head coach post is on Friday, December 14.
