T20 WC India Squad – BCCI Selection Committee: Strange are the BCCI ways. The world’s richest & self proclaimed ‘most professional cricket board’ did not get time to in last 5 months to appoint a fifth selector on the national senior selection committee. Yes, you read it right, BCCI has been selecting NATIONAL CRICKET TEAMS with one selector short after Abey Kuruvilla resigned from his post in February 2022: Follow Indian Cricket LIVE Updates with InsideSport.IN
Kuruvilla resigned from his post in February as he had completed a total of five years on the board’s cricket committees. Since than BCCI has been selecting teams only with 4 SELECTORS.
Chetan Sharma, Sunil Joshi, Harvinder Singh and Debashish Mohanty have been selecting teams without a 5th SELECTOR on board. The selection committee with 1 SELECTOR SHORT has selected teams for SriLanka series, followed by the tours of Ireland and England, as well as the upcoming West Indies trip.
When asked BCCI source gave a strange reply.
“It has been busy 5 months. IPL 2022, Media Rights tender and the other tournaments & matters have kept the board busy. We will assure that the 5th selector gets appointed before the selections of Asia Cup & T20 World Cup squads”, quipped the BCCI official.
