New Delhi. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has 60 days left to choose the chief selector. The ICC has fixed August 29 as the deadline for team submission in the upcoming World Cup 2023. At present there are 4 people in the BCCI selection committee who have overall experience of 55 matches. In such a situation, the biggest question is whether this selection committee will be able to select the best team for the World Cup to be held in India?
BCCI has sought applications for one vacant place in the selection committee. The schedule of the ICC World Cup has not been released yet but it is believed that this prestigious tournament can start from 5 October. The website Inside Sport quoted the ICC as saying that team submissions for the tournament have to be done 30 days before the start of the main event. The start of the support period starts one week before the start of the tournament. You can make changes to a team before the start of the support period, and it doesn’t require anyone’s approval.
Chetan Sharma resigned after being caught in the sting operation.
After the start of the support period, you have to take permission from the technical committee to change the team. After being eliminated from the semi-finals of the 2022 T20 World Cup, the BCCI changed the selection committee by dropping chief selector Chetan Sharma. However, in February this year, Chetan Sharma resigned from his post after a Stimp operation came to the fore. Since then there is a vacancy in the selection committee and the last date for applications invited by the board is June 30.
Team India was selected by a 4-member selection committee for the WTC final.
Recently, a 4-member selection committee headed by Shivsundar Das selected the Indian team for the WTC final against Australia. The BCCI would not like to see the fate of the Indian team in the WTC final again.
