CAC contacted previous players Ajay Ratra, Amar Khurasiya, and S Sharath regarding potential board spots

The CAC, comprised of Sulakshana Naik, Jatin Paranjape, and former players Ashok Malhotra and Jatin Paranjape, is in charge of interviewing the selection panel.

According to ESPNCricinfo, former players Ajay Ratra, Amay Khurasiya, and S Sharath are being interviewed for a position on the Indian senior men’s selection panel. In addition to Chetan Sharma and Harvinder Singh, the aforementioned players were interviewed by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), which was appointed by the BCCI. The shortlisted candidates presented themselves to the panel, which will present the board with their recommendations this week. SS Das, a native of the East Zone and a former India opener, is the other contender.

Sharath, a former batter for Tamil Nadu, is now a serious contender to replace Sunil Joshi in the South Zone. Joshi chose not to apply again. Sharath, who is currently in charge of the group for lesser men, will rise to unmistakable quality if he is chosen. His committee chose India’s World Cup winners under the age of 19.

As he as of late talked with India and Odisha, Das is presumably going to take over for his East Zone partner Debasis Mohanty. Between 2000 and 2002, Das played for India in 180 first-class matches, 23 Tests, and four One-Day Internationals.

Mohanty had completed his maximum-stipulated five-year term across various cricket committees, necessitating the need for a new selector from the East Zone, despite the BCCI’s invitation to submit applications for a new selection panel. Both the junior and senior panels had him on them.

Similar to this, the board would have had to select a second West Zone selector because Abey Kuruvilla, the previous Indian pacer, had only lived in the area for five years. As a result, Chetan Sharma’s selection committee would have had four members. When Kuruvilla left to become the BCCI Senior supervisor (improvement in cricket), the board did not name a replacement.

However, there was speculation that Chetan Sharma might continue to serve as chairman after he attended the BCCI’s review meeting on Monday. India’s performance at the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022 and a plan for this year’s 50-over World Cup were the topics of the meeting. The meeting was attended by India captain Rohit Sharma, NCA chief VVS Laxman, and the board’s top brass.

During the fourth round of the Ranji Trophy, the incumbent panel has not been asked to report to any of the locations. A second extension was granted until the end of 2022 to select teams for the white-ball series against Sri Lanka and to oversee the December 27-30 third-round Ranji games.

The CAC, which is answerable for talking the assurance board, is contained past players Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjape, and Sulakshana Naik.
