The Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) opened applications for members at the five-member selection panel. Notably, the BCCI has received over 600 applications for the post via their official email channel.

Interestingly, BCCI was thumped by navigating multiple applications via fake identifications of veteran Indian cricketers including legendary Sachin Tendulkar, World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni, astonishing batsman Virender Sehwag and former Pakistani batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq. The applications via these legends were received through spam emails.

The BCCI is expected to shortlist 10 profiles for the prestigious position. The recently appointed Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjape and Sulakshana Naik has been vested with the powers of appointing the five-member selection committee.

The previous selection committee led by Chetan Sharma was sacked by the BCCI’s Governing Council after India’s humiliating exit at the recently concluded T20 World Cup in Australia. Some demeaning decisions by Sharma & co. led to their exclusion from retention.

The BCCI held their Apex Council Meeting on Wednesday where the executive committee and CAC were set to appoint the national selectors. However, the decision to appoint did not take place as the stipulated shortlisting of applications was not carried out.

BCCI to finalise new selectors by December end

Since the appointment of a new committee was delayed, the incumbent committee is currently overseeing the performance of domestic players in the second round of the Ranji Trophy.

The BCCI in consultation with CAC will likely appoint the new selection committee by the end of this month. Upon their appointment, they will be assigned crucial tasks to name India’s frontline squad for the home series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

In wake of the upcoming World Cup in 2023, it will be interesting to watch BCCI’s stance and the decision of the newly appointed selection committee.
