The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) said that out of thousands of applicants, 6 have been selected for the post of head coach of India, six of whom have been selected for final interviews.
Besides Shastri, the other candidates for the high-profile post include former Indian cricketers Lalchand Rajput and Robin Singh, former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson, former Australian all-rounder Tom Moody and West Indies great Phil Simmons.
Besides this, Robin has also been coaching Team Mumbai in the IPL since joining the franchise in 2010.
Former West Indies all-rounder Phil Simmons represented his national side in 26 Tests and 143 One-Day Internationals between 1987 and 1999. Later, as head coach, he transformed Otago into a unit which regularly competed for domestic titles. He has also worked with IPL franchises Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad - the latter replaced him with England's World Cup-winning coach Trevor Bayliss in July.
Confirming the updates, a senior BCCI official was quoted by CrickInfo as saying by Press Trust of India, "These six will give presentation for head coach before CAC".
"Shastri is the automatic entry into this process like the rest of the support staff".
After retiring in 2002, he was first appointed Zimbabwe coach back in 2004.

Monday's reversals provided another reminder of the fragile mood across markets, which have endured a tumultuous start to August. The spread between 2-year and 10-year Treasury yields narrowed to only 6 basis points, near its lowest level in a dozen years.
Also, Hesson was appointed coach of Kings XI Punjab for Indian Premier League in 2019.
After a disastrous first stint with Zimbabwe in 2007, he took over the Ireland team which had made noise by upsetting Pakistan and qualifying for the Super Eights at their World Cup debut. He began his coaching career immediately after hanging his boots from global cricket and was in charge of the India Under-19 side.
Simmons also served West Indies for a brief while, helping them to victory in the 2016 World T20 tournament in India before taking over as head coach of the Afghanistan national team in 2017. He also had a long coaching association with the Mumbai Indians.
Among the Indians, Robin served as the fielding coach of the Indian team when it won the inaugural World T20 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni's captaincy in 2007.
The former Australian all-rounder played worldwide cricket between 1987 and 1999 in both Tests and ODIs sporadically.
In 2016, he was appointed as the head coach of the Afghanistan national side, and saw the team become an ICC full member under his tenure.
Under Shastri, India have not won any significant trophy and barring the series win in Australia, the team struggled in Test matches in South Africa and England and was also ousted from the 2019 World Cup when they lost to New Zealand.
