The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are all in readiness to proceed with the next course of action after many applicants have expressed their interest in the men’s selectors positions. The cricket board had sacked the previous selection committee headed by former pacer Chetan Sharma and invited fresh applications to fill the vacant slot.
Even the former members of the core committee -- Chetan Sharma and Harvinder Singh -- have re-applied to be a part of the new selection committee which is reportedly set to be formed in January 2023.
The list of new applicants for the selectors’ post include some of the well-known cricketers including Maninder Singh, Shiv Sunder Das and the wicketkeeping duo of Nayan Mongia and Ajay Ratra. The deadline for the interested candidates to file their nominations was November 28.
