The Cricket Advisory Committee, led by former cricketer Ashok Malhotra, is expected to meet on December 30 to start the process of picking the new selection committee of the Indian team. As per reports, the three-member team comprising Sulakshana Naik, Jatin Paranjpe and Malhotra will be meeting in the BCCI office in Mumbai to take the process further.
It is expected that the team will meet the other office bearers of BCCI to finalise the necessary details. As things stand, there are no interviews scheduled at the moment as that will only be done after a discussion with other top officials of the board.
In the meantime, the CAC members are expected to shortlist a few candidates in the meeting. As per reports, the board received a high volume of fake emails and the genuine ones have been forwarded to the committee. A Cricbuzz report suggest that the interviews will be done in-person. The CAC has reportedly conveyed the same to the top officials of the board and thus, they will organise the travel for the shortlisted candidates.
The entire process is likely to be completed by the end of January 2023. In the meantime, the old selection committee will take all the necessary decisions, if required. They recently announced India squad for the Sri Lanka series as well.
Interestingly, Chetan Sharma, the former chief selector, has reapplied for the role alongside his colleague Harvinder Singh. Neither of these two could complete their tenure of four years and are eligible for a role in the new selection committee. Meanwhile, Venkatesh Prasad, S Sharath, SS Das, Maninder Singh, Mukund Parmar, Nayan Mongia, Salil Ankola and Sameer Dighe are among many who have applied for the five positions in the All India Selection Committee.
