There is one vacancy in the Selection Committee for the Indian Men’s Cricket Team. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has now invited applications for this post. Those members will be appointed against the vacant seats in the Northern Division. However, it is said that players with extensive experience in international cricket are less likely to apply for this post.
🚨 NEWS 🚨
BCCI invites applications for one member of Men’s Selection Committee post.
— BCCI (@BCCI) June 22, 2023
The BCCI has laid down certain rules for selection for this unique seat. The person applying for this post should have played at least 7 Test matches or 30 First Class matches or 10 ODIs and 20 T20 matches. Also the player should have announced his retirement from all forms of cricket five years ago. Also he should not currently hold any position in BCCI. Candidates have been given a deadline of June 30 to apply.
The selection will be made in place of Chetan Sharma, chairman of the selection committee after he was found guilty in the sting operation. However, it is unlikely that any big player will apply for this seat from the North division. The main reason for this is the salary offered for this post.
An annual amount of Rs.1 Crore is paid for the post of Selection Committee Chairman. While other members get ninety lakh rupees. As this amount is relatively low, many senior players do not apply for this post. Last time K Srikanth was the veteran player selection committee chairman with immense experience. He held this charge from 2009 to 2012.
Currently Virender Sehwag is appearing as a candidate for this post. Players like Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh also represent the North Division. However, as these players retired recently, they do not fit the five-year criteria.
