New Delhi: Former Indian team player Ajit Agarkar may become the new president of the selection committee. Today, the national selectors will also be selected at the 89th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of BCCI to be held in Ahmedabad. The Cricket Advisory Board headed by Madan Lal will be interviewed for the position of the Selection Committee. Many players have submitted their names in the phase of becoming national selectors. However, Ajit Agarkar’s name is at the forefront of this race.
Agarkar claims the strongest
According to the new constitution of the BCCI, the highest test-match candidate will be the chief selector. Of all the candidates in this race, Ajit Agarkar is the most played player. He played 26 tests and 191 ODI for India and is the first choice of the panel. In such a situation, he may also be the next chair of the selection committee. At present, Sunil Joshi is the chief selector, who has played 15 tests.
Besides Ajit in this list, the names of left arm spinner Maninder Singh, former opener Shiv Sundar Das, former quick pitcher Chetan Sharma, former wicket keeper Ajay Ratra, former out- spinner Nikhil Chopra of former wicket keeper Vijay Dahiya are important.
These AZ will be discussed
At the same time, there is also speculation from BCCI at the AGM that BCCI President Sourav Ganguly will be asked about his advertisements and the issue of conflict of interest related to him. There will also be an official announcement of the selection of the new BCCI Vice-President, Rajeev Shukla, who was elected unanimously. Brijesh Patel will remain as the head of the IPL board.
Two new teams will also be approved for IPL 2022. A senior board official said: “ It is not possible to have ten teams in the IPL for 2021 at the moment. For this, the bidding process and the auction will take a long time and it is not possible in such a short time. He said: “It is only fair that the approval is taken and there is a 94 match tournament in 2022”.
