The Indian cricket team may get a new selection committee soon. Ajit Agarkar’s name is in discussion as the new chairman of the selection committee. The names of Ravi Shastri and Dilip Vengsarkar are also being discussed for the role. However, a decision taken by Agarkar on Thursday (June 29) has almost sealed his name for the presidency.
The Delhi Capitals team of the Indian Premier League could not perform as expected this year. After the team’s poor showing, there were talks of a change in the franchise’s support staff. It was said that head coach Ricky Ponting would be relieved of responsibility. But on Thursday (June 29), Ajit Agarkar and Shane Watson were released by Delhi Capitals. Both of them were serving as assistant coaches of the Delhi team.
Agarkar is also said to have left the post to take up the role of India’s selection committee chairman. This information was given from the official social media account of Delhi Capitals. “This will always be home to you,” the Delhi Capitals wrote in the post. Thanks Ajit and Watson. Good luck for the future.”
Meanwhile, Ajit Agarkar had earlier applied and given an interview to become the chief selector of the Indian team in 2021 itself. But at that time Chetan Sharma got this responsibility. This time too, Agarkar seems interested in this post. According to media reports, the BCCI may also increase the chief selector’s salary for Agarkar. Currently, the annual salary of a person working in this position is one crore. If Agarkar takes up the responsibility, the salary may be increased. Also, the salary of other members of the selection committee may also have to be increased from 90 lakhs.
Agarkar certainly makes more money as an assistant coach and commentator for Delhi Capitals. So BCCI can take a decision on this. On the other hand, Ravi Shastri is also seen criticizing again after leaving the post of India’s head coach. The earnings of the scribes may also be higher than the salary of the chief sleepers. In this case, BCCI may have to increase the salary for this post in the near future. (Ajit Agarkar steps down as Delhi Capitals assistant coach, soon to take charge as India’s chief selector)
