The senior selection committee, which has been in constant discussion in Indian cricket circles, will soon have a new chairman. No person has filled the post left vacant after the resignation of Chetan Sharma. Now BCCI has invited applications for that seat. Although the vacancy is in the North Division, former players from the West Division are likely to apply. Therefore, the possibility of a former Mumbaikar cricketer being appointed in that place has increased.
Interviews for this post will be held on July 1. The name of former Indian test player Ajit Agarkar is at the forefront. If he applies, he can directly become the selection committee chairman. Currently, Shivsunder Das is the most experienced person in the four-man selection committee with 23 Tests. However, since Agarkar has played 26 Test matches, he will be given the responsibility of the president. Also, Salil Ankola is already included in the Selection Committee as the representative of Western Region.
In addition, Ravi Shastri, the former captain of India and former head coach Ravi Shastri may also be featured in this place unexpectedly. Some BCCI officials would like to see him in this position. Shastri had left the post of Indian team’s head coach two years ago. As he knows all these players well, he is also in the race to become the president.
Also, the name of former Indian captain and former selection committee chairman Dilip Vengsarkar can be considered. He held this post from 2008 to 2010. He also gets the credit for giving Virat Kohli a chance. So Vengsarkar can sit in this position if some unexpected decision happens.
