The Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) has invited new candidates for the position of National Selectors for senior men’s teams. This means that the term of office of the current Chetan Sharma-led panel has come to an end. Earlier this month, the selectors had chosen the teams for the series against New Zealand and Bangladesh. It remains to be seen who will be the interested candidates for the selector role. The last date for submitting applications is November 28. After the BCCI called for applications, a fan requested former Indian lead-off hitter Aakash Chopra to apply for the position.

“@cricketaakash. You can apply.. All the points you keep mentioning and sharing in #AakashVani can be implemented and help select a better team,” the fan tweeted.

In response to this tweet, Chopra said, “It will be an honor to be given this responsibility one day. But not now. Not for me.”

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah had mentioned last month after the board’s AGM in Mumbai that a new selection committee will be formed. He had also said that a Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) would be formed to oversee the nomination process for the national selectors.

Mr Shah had also said that the CAC would review the candidates after one year and provide feedback to the board on their performance.

The decision to scrap the previous selection committee comes in the wake of India’s semi-final exit from the T20 World Cup.
