After BCCI top brass, now selectors have to quit
New Delhi : It’s been some hard days for Board of Control for Cricket in India. On Monday, the Supreme court sacked President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke for not obeying the reforms of the Lodha committee.
Now, its national selectors turns to face the diktat. The selection panel which comprises of Gagan Khoda Jatin Paranjpe, MSK Prasad, Devang Gandhi and Sarandeep Singh has to leave out two members.
According to the top court, the panel was supposed to be a three member team with former Test players.
The committee has to drop Gagan Khoda and Jatin Paranjpe from the panel. It will be just MSK Prasad, Devang Gandhi and Sarandeep Singh all former Test players who would be selecting the upcoming team for the ODIs and T20s against England on January 5.
Khoda with two and Paranjpe with 4 ODIs, don’t qualify the criteria set by the apex court.
According to BCCI officials Khoda and Paranjpe’s could be made talent coordinators, a rank below selectors and also suggested in the reforms by the panel.
