Indian cricket team selection committee has been chosen. 5 selectors have been selected by the Indian Cricket Board. Among them, the board brought back the dismissed selector Chetan Sharma. This time also he will work as the chief selector in the selection committee. Last Saturday, Board Secretary Joy Shah announced the names of 5 selectors including him. Discussion and criticism about the matter has started in the Indian Cricket Board. Many have raised the question that if Chetan Sharma was brought back to the board, why was he sacked a few days ago?
Apart from Chetan Sharma, the remaining four members of the committee are new faces. According to the board sources, these selectors have been selected from around 600 applicants. The Cricket Advisory Committee was responsible for choosing the selection committee. The committee consisted of Sulakshana Naik, Ashok Malhotra and Jatin Paranjp. They chose Chetan Sharma along with the rest of the members. The four are Sivasunder Das, Subrata Banerjee, Salil Ankala and Sreedharan Sarat.
Chetan Sharma will act as the chief selector. Shivsundar who is with him will represent Madhya Pradesh. Sharat will represent the southern region, Ankola will represent the western region and Subrata will represent the eastern region. Since then the discussion has started about this new selection panel. After India’s failure in the last Twenty20 World Cup, the Indian Cricket Board scrapped the selection panel. BCCI announced to reorganize everything. Chetan Sharma was also dropped at that time.
Chetan was canceled due to failure, but the board brought Chetan back to the committee. India New Zealand series ahead. The new selection committee will choose the team. And in that case, the Board thinks Chetan is the right person. The Cricket Advisory Committee has also given their decision. According to them, Chetan is experienced and has enough experience to lead the team. Therefore, the advisory committee does not think it is right to remove Chetan at this moment. That is why the Indian Cricket Board has confidence in Chetan.
It may be noted that India will play a three-match ODI and three-match T20 series against New Zealand from January 18. After three ODIs on January 18, 21 and 24, India will face New Zealand in three T20Is on January 27, 29 and February 1. Meanwhile, Team India is very happy after winning the three-match T20 series against Sri Lanka Senior cricketers like Kohli – Rohit were not in the series against Sri Lanka. These experienced cricketers can return to 22 yards of the field again with a test against New Zealand.
