BCCI has received more than 600 Applications for the five-member New Selection Committee. And what comes as a shock for the Governing Body was the fact that they receive applications for the post of New Selection Committee from fake ids claiming to be of Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni & Virender Sehwag.
Not only this but also they receive applications from fake email ids claiming to be of Inzamam-Ul-Haq. The applications which were sent from fake email ids might have been directed to the BCCI for fun. On the other hand, BCCI has received over 600 applications for the position of selection committee & they will shortlist around 10 of them out of which they will choose the best five for the high-profile five-member selection committee panel.
“The CAC will shortlist 10 candidates and then choose the final five. The process will be completed soon,” a BCCI source told PTI.
The BCCI has sacked the Chetan Sharma-led selection committee panel after India’s humiliating exit from the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-finals. However, the panel continues to be in action with the final panel yet to be finalized. The old selection committee is witnessing the first round of the Ranji Trophy & is currently monitoring the second round of the Ranji Trophy 2022. Mohanty is currently in Kolkata watching Bengal vs Himachal Pradesh fixtures.
