On Friday, the BCCI invited programs for the placement of countrywide selectors (Senior Men).
The final date of utility is November 28. That Chetan might be sacked became first said via way of means of PTI on October 18 after the BCCI AGM however it’s far learned that his committee has now no longer even been instructed approximately the sacking.
The new chairman`s process mandate has a thrilling description of “deciding on a captain in every format” which indicates that BCCI is probably shifting toward cut-up captaincy in close to future.
Chetan (North zone), Harvinder Singh (Central Zone), Sunil Joshi (South Zone), and Debasish Mohanty (East Zone) have had the shortest stint as senior countrywide selectors in the latest times.
Joshi and Harvinder had been appointed countrywide selectors in February 2020. After the AGM in January 2021, Chetan took over as chairman of selectors with Mohanty and Kuruvilla becoming a member of him.
A senior countrywide selector generally receives a 4-yr period challenge to extension. There became no selector from West Zone after Abbey Kuruvilla`s tenure ended.
Once, India was misplaced withinside the semi-final of the T20 World Cup, the writing became usually on the wall that Chetan became on borrowed time.
During Chetan`s tenure, India additionally did not attain knock-out level withinside the 2021 version of the T20 World Cup and misplaced the World Test Championships very last.

No tangible plan as to whether a 37-yr-vintage senior like Shikhar Dhawan could be carried to the 2023 World Cup whilst he could be above 38 is several the troubles that have by no means been addressed.
Chetan and his group may want to in no way praise the home or IPL performers and select experts throughout T20 World Cups. Theirs is a committee below whom India has misplaced T20 World Cup video games through 10 wickets, something that has in no way came about in advance.
That Chetan Sharma`s days have been numbered turned into understood whilst he reduces a lonely determine throughout the T20 World Cup in Australia. He in no way traveled with the group and might stand at a truthful distance from head train Rahul Dravid on the quilt of bowlers` run-up on the nets.
The media in Australia in no way witnessed any great communication among the duo.
New job task for new selectors
A new chairman to pick out captains in “every layout”, and record to Apex Council, what might be a prime development, the brand-new choice committee, as and whilst it takes to charge, might be mandated to pick out captains throughout 3 codecs which efficiently way that BCCI might be going for cut up the captaincy.
This may want to imply that Rohit Sharma will stay captain in ODIs and Test cricket in the meantime even as Hardik Pandya turns into the shortest layout chief until the 2024 T20 World Cup in USA and West Indies.
The qualification standards remained the same. The age cap is 60 years and the incumbent might should be retired from lively cricket for at least 5 years. He must play at least seven Test fits or 30 nice video games or 10 ODIs alongside 20 nice video games.
