The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday announced the new members for the selection committee with former Indian cricketer Chetan Sharma set to rejoin the board as the Chairman of the senior men’s selection committee.

The Chetan Sharma-led previous selection committee was sacked after the T20 World Cup
It is worth noting that Sharma served as the head of the BCCI selection committee from December 2020 until the entire panel was sacked in the aftermath of the T20 World Cup 2022. The 1983 World Cup winner had reapplied for the post and the CAC recommended him to continue as the chairman of the selection committee while adding four new faces to the panel.
Among the new arrivals to the committee, Ankola, the ex-Indian cricketer, was serving as the chief of Mumbai's selection panel since December 17, 2020 while Sharath has been serving as the chairman of the Junior National Selection Committee since September 2021.
