The Board of Control for Cricket in India is without a complete selection panel. The previous selector's team was headed by Sunil Joshi, along with Devang Gandhi, Jatin Pranjpe, Sarandeep Singh and Harvinder Singh. Madan Lal is expected to lead the panel to interview the selectors.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to conduct online interviews for its three vacant national selector's spot. The session would be handled by the board's Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and would be overseen by former Indian cricketer, Madan Lal, on Thursday.
While the selection interviews would take place from Mumbai, BCCI would be conducting its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Ahemdabad on the very day, reports Times of India. Besides Lal, the CAC interview panel would also consist of former Indian pacer, RP Singh, and former Indian women's player, Sulakshana Naik.
The members of the CAC were elected in January for a tenure of a year. BCCI could be considering extending the term of the very members, as the same is likely to be discussed during the AGM, on Thursday.
The same CAC panel chose the previous selection committee, which elected Sunil Joshi and Harvinder Singh. Meanwhile, the forum is all set to interview the likes of Nayan Mongia, Ajit Agarkar and Abey Kuruvilla (West Zone), Maninder Singh, Chetan Sharma and Nikhil Chopra (North Zone), along with Ranadeb Bose and Shiv Sunder Das (East Zone) for the five-member panel.
BCCI wants to finalise the post for the selectors before India's upcoming home series against England, which is set to comprise four Tests, along with five T20Is and three ODIs. India is currently playing in Australia a four-Test series to defend the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, as Joshi and Harvinder selected the players.
