The Board of Control for Cricket has invited applications for the position of National Selectors and laid down criteria for the same. Applicants must have a minimum of 7 test matches or 30 first-class matches or 10 ODIs, and 20 first-class games under their belt. This vacancy was announced after BCCI sacked Chetan Sharma-led All India Selection Committee after India lost the T20 World Cup. Chetan Sharma was appointed to the post of Chief Selector in December 2020.
Along with the abovementioned criteria, BCCI added that the applicant should have retired from the game at least five years ago and shouldn’t have been a member of any Cricket Committee for a total of 5 years, as per the rules and regulations of BCCI. If they fulfil the above criteria, they will be eligible to be a member of the Men’s Selection Committee.
The BCCI has also announced the appointment of Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjape and Sulakshana Naik in a three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) to pick the new selectors for Team India.
