The Chetan Sharma-led senior national selection team fired by BCCI on Friday


The top national selection committee, which Chetan Sharma chaired, was fired by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday as a result of team India’s unsatisfactory performance in the recently finished T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. The senior men’s team’s national selectors job is open for applicants, the board stated on Friday. The BCCI further stated that the application deadline is November 28 at 6 p.m. IST.

The most recent senior national selectors with the shortest terms were Debasish Mohanty, Sunil Joshi, Harvinder Singh, and Chetan (North Zone). Joshi and Harvinder were appointed national selectors in February 2020. After the AGM in January 2021, Mohanty and Kuruvilla took over from Chetan as chairman of selectors.

Under Chetan’s direction, India failed to make it through the group stage of the T20 World Cup in 2021, and they lost to New Zealand in the ICC World Test Championships final in 2018.Interesting language in the job description for the new chairman refers to “selecting captain in each format,” which raises the possibility that BCCI could transition to divided captaincy soon.

Candidates who are interested in applying for the aforementioned post must meet the following requirements: they must have played at least 7 Test matches, 30 First Class matches, 10 ODI matches, and 20 First Class matches. Should have given up playing at least five years ago. Men’s Selection Committee members cannot have served on any Cricket Committee (as defined in BCCI rules and regulations) for more than five years at a time, the BCCI stated in a press release.
