“There had to be a change and have to admit there were a few wrong decisions in selection. We needed a fresh start. Some of their tenures were ending and we had to start fresh with a new approach and new mindset. We did not get the results we wanted and after Jay and Ashish came back from Melbourne, we decided, it would be best to have a completely new panel, “ a BCCI official told InsideSport

After a humiliating semifinal exit, the Indian cricket board has ended the reign of Chetan Sharma, Debashish Mohanty, Harvinder Singh and Sunil Joshi as selectors of the Indian cricket team. The selection committee has come under the scanner over the past few months over their controversial and debatable choices, which ultimately culminated in India’s exit from the tournament.

The decision was taken after top Indian cricket officials returned from Australia, having flown to Melbourne for the recently concluded T20 World Cup. The Men in Blue, led by Rohit Sharma, were knocked out in the semifinals, suffering a 10-wicket loss to eventual champions England.

BCCI swiftly announced their sacking on social media, while inviting applications for the position of National Selections. Candidates who wish to apply for the said position need to fulfil the following criteria for their applications to be considered.

Criteria for National Selectors

  •  7 Test matches / 30 First Class matches /10 ODI and 20 First Class matches.
  • Should have retired from the game at least 5 years ago.
  • No person who has been a member of any Cricket Committee (as defined in the rules and regulations of BCCI) for a total of 5 years shall be eligible to be a member of Men’s Selection Committee.

The BCCI on Friday sacked the four-member senior national selection committee led by Chetan Sharma after the Indian cricket team failed to reach the final of the T20 World Cup in Australia. During Chetan’s tenure, India had also failed to reach the knock-out stage in the 2021 edition of T20 World Cup and lost the World Test Championships final.

Chetan (North zone), Harvinder Singh (Centra Zone), Sunil Joshi (South Zone) and Debasish Mohanty (East Zone) have had the shortest stint as senior national selectors in recent times. Some of them were appointed in 2020 and some in 2021.

A senior national selector normally gets a four-year term subject to extension. There was no selector from West Zone after Abbey Kuruvilla’s tenure ended.

That Chetan will be sacked was reported by PTI on October 18 after the BCCI AGM. On Friday, the BCCI invited applications for the position of national selectors (Senior Men).

The last date of application is November 28.
