The Indian Test team for the West Indies tour was announced on Friday. On the first Thursday of this announcement, the BCCI, while posting a post on its social media, informed that the board is looking for a new selector. Currently there are four selectors in the BCCI, but a team of 5 people together form the selection committee. The previous day it was speculated that the board had approached Virender Sehwag to make him/her the chief selector. But now Virender Sehwag has refuted all these speculations.
Sehwag said this
Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag while replying to TOI on this issue refuted this. In fact, in February, former chief selector Chetan Sharma resigned from his/her post. Since then the BCCI is without a chief selector. Since then, former Indian player Shiv Sundar Das has been serving as the interim chief selector, while S Sharath (South), Subroto Banerjee (Central) and Salil Ankola (West) are the other members of the panel. But India now has to participate in big tournaments like Asia Cup and ODI World Cup in the coming time. In such a situation, BCCI wants the right person to sit on this post.
BCCI issues advertisement for the post of selector
The BCCI on Thursday put out an advertisement on its website for the post of men’s selection committee member. The selected candidate is likely to be the new chief selector of the committee. The candidate must have played seven Tests or 30 first-class matches, or 10 ODIs and 20 first-class matches. They must have retired from the game at least five years ago. The last date to apply for the post is June 30. At a time when there are demands for a change in the team, it will be necessary for the new selector to plan and prepare a strong bench strength and appoint a captain for the team. Now it will be interesting to see which player sits on this post in the coming times.
