In  a big move the BCCI has  sacked the four-member senior national selection committee led by Chetan Sharma after the Indian cricket team failed to reach the final of the T20 World Cup in Australia.

India crashed out in the semis after England send them out with a thumping 10 wicket win powered by the opening duo of England skipper Jos Buttler and Alex Hales.

During Chetan’s tenure, India had also failed to reach knock-out stage in the 2021 edition of T20 World Cup and lost the World Test Championships final. The team  also did not reach the Asia cup 2022 final.

As per PTI report, Chetan (North zone), Harvinder Singh (Centra Zone), Sunil Joshi (South Zone) and Debasish Mohanty (East Zone) have had the shortest stint as senior national selectors in recent times. Some of them were appointed in 2020 and some in 2021.

A senior national selector normally gets a four-year term subject to extension. There was no selector from West Zone after Abbey Kuruvilla’s tenure ended.

That Chetan will be sacked was reported by PTI on October 18 after the BCCI AGM.

Further , the BCCI in a release on its website  invited applications for the position of national selectors (Senior Men).

The last date of application is November 28.Candidates who wish to apply for the said position need to fulfil the following criteria for their applications to be considered.
