Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has apparently confirmed that he did approach current RCB coach and former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori to take on the role of Indian national coach.
The Indian Test skipper Kohli stated that he had this conversation with Vettori sometime ago.

As Ravi Shastri's contract as the Team Director for the India ended after the ICC World T20, BCCI have been on the lookout to appoint a new individual as the coach of the Indian cricket team.
Virat Kohli and Daniel Vettori share a great rapport as captain and coach respectively, of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team. So this recommendation, if true, comes as no surprise.
