Who Will be Team India’s New Selector?

Team India’s New Selector

Today is the last day to submit applications for the position of the selector. For the opening of five selectors, the BCCI has already received more than 80 applications. The board will review the applications, and in December it will unveil the new selection committee. Let us look at Who Will be Team India’s New Selector?

The selection of the team for the Australia series will be the new selection committee’s first significant task. Over 80 applications have already been submitted to BCCI. Chetan Sharma, Sunil Joshi, Debashish Mohanty, and Harvinder Singh are the current members of the committee till a new one is appointed.

Top Candidates for BCCI Selection Committee

Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, a strong candidate from the south zone, might not make the panel, nevertheless. The BCCI’s refusal to permit two selectors from the same state unit on the junior and senior selection committees could be the cause.

Last time, Sivaramakrishnan was in the lead. N Srinivasan, the president of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, supported him. However, Chetan Sharma was the one who was hired thanks to the assistance of former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. Roger Binny has the initiative now that Ganguly is out of the game. He gets along well with Srinivasan and could be willing to make an exception for Sivaramakrishnan.

There are many qualified individuals from the Central Zone and the North Zone. The BCCI’s requirement for at least 30 First Class matches widens the field of possibilities. However, SS Das is a strong contender from the East Zone. Last time, the Odisha-born former India batter was the favourite. but didn’t enter.

Ajit Agarkar As Next Selector Chief

Ajit Agarkar would probably serve as the selectors’ chairman if he applied. He might be ideal because India is looking for someone with T20 experience. Agarkar has participated in 62 T20 games, including the IPL, and 4 T20Is for India.

But Agarkar is hardly the only West Zone resident. Salil Ankola is his main rival. The former India bowler is likely to be given the position if he receives support from Mumbai Cricket strongman and BCCI treasurer Ashish Shelar.

BCCI to Hold Meeting to Discuss Big Problems

Rohit Sharma and company depart for Dhaka on December 1. BCCI top brass will convene in Mumbai before that. However, the time has not yet been decided. Along with the support staff and the departing selectors, head coach Rahul Dravid will be in Mumbai. Even though it is a formal review meeting, a lot of clarity will be gained. Once everything is said and done, Cricket Advisory Committee will be in charge of selecting the selection committee.
