Venkatesh Prasad New Chairman? – BCCI looking for T20 Specialist as Selector: The BCCI is also of the view that a selector with experience of playing T20 Cricket should be part of the selection committee.

The search for such a selector hasn’t materialised so far. The brief to the new Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe and Sulakshana Naik is clear ‘to pick selectors with a vision for rebuilding the team’.

How the new selection committe can look like?

  • Venkatesh Prasad tipped to take over as NEW CHAIRMAN as representative from South
  • From the West Zone, Salil Ankola’s name has cropped up quite a few times. The former India pacer will be a favourite if he gets the backing of treasurer Ashish Shelar, the strongman of Mumbai cricket.
  • From East Zone SS Das of Odisha can be picked from East Zone.
  • From North Maninder Singh, Atul Wasan & Nikhil Chopra are in contention
  • Nayan Mongia is another name doing the rounds as a potential pick from Central Zone.

BCCI New Selection Committee: Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad likely to be named NEW CHAIRMAN, CAC to decide new committee

BCCI New Selection Committee – No takers for Chetan Sharma? CAC will now interview the shortlisted candidates and take a call by next week. However, the new BCCI and CAC aren’t sure about giving a 2nd chance to the former chairman of the selection committee Chetan Sharma. He has reapplied for the job. The CAC and selectors will have a big task ahead including a decision on India T20 Reboot. 

“We have the CAC in place. We are shortlisting candidates for the selection committee at the moment. We should have the names by next week. The CAC will conduct the interviews and finalise the list,” a BCCI official told InsideSport.

To note, Sulakshana Naik, who was part of the previous CAC remains in her position. It will be up to the two new members, Ashok Malhotra and Jatin Paranjape. What could work in Chetan Sharma’s favour is Malhotra’s close association with him in the past. InsideSport reached out to new CAC Member Jatin Paranjape. But he refused to confirm or deny the development.

“It will be a collective decision. Nobody is ruled out. Chetan has had a mixed bag. He succeeded in some and failed in some. Not winning Asia Cup and T20 World Cup is a collective failure. One cannot just blame the selectors or the players. Whether Chetan will be back, it will be a discussion,” the official said.
