Maninder, Chetan in fray for BCCI selection committee posts

New Delhi: The new-look national selection committee of the BCCI is set to have a boost in its profile with some of the well-known former India players like Chetan Sharma, Maninder Singh and Shiv Sunder Das applying for the vacant posts from their respective zones.

However, Ajit Agarkar, who has 231 international matches (191 ODIs, 26 Tests, 4 T20Is) to his name, could be the front-runner for the chairman’s post in case he decides to re-apply for selector’s job.

While Agarkar couldn’t be contacted for a comment, it has been learnt that he would throw his hat in the ring and his credentials for the top job will be difficult to ignore considering his vast international experience (three ODI World Cups and one World T20 in 2007).

Although the BCCI has officially got rid of the zonal system, it is highly unlikely that two people from the same zone will be kept in the selection panel.

Sunil Joshi from South Zone (84 international games – 15 Tests and 69 ODIs) was the chairman while the Central Zone was represented by Harvinder Singh. But, some of the applicants in the fray have more international matches than Joshi, who will then have to relinquish his post as per Lodha Committee rule.
