Hello friends, Lets Talk about
Two days after Chetan Sharma revealed some big secrets of Indian cricket in a sting operation conducted by Zee News, BCCI’s chief selector resigned from the job. Sharma submitted his resignation to BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, who has accepted it. The outgoing selector had made major revelations in the video, including the ‘feud’ between ex-captain Virat Kohli and the then BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. He had also spoken at length about how some Indian cricketers allegedly take injections to speed up their recovery, adding that these days most of them are ready to play even with 50 to 60 per cent fitness.

One of the most controversial statements made by Chetan Sharma in the Zee News video was that Kohli lied to the press that Ganguly made no attempt to stop him from vacating the T20I captaincy.
The BCCI will now have to find a new chief selector soon. The selection committee is required to pick India’s squad for the remaining two Tests against Australia as well as the three-match ODI series against the same opposition. The third Test match will begin in Indore from March 1.
The outgoing selector had somehow managed to save his job after India failed to win the T20 World Cup 2022 and was knocked out in the semi-finals. Some of the selection decisions had not gone down well with India fans and they wanted him sacked. However, the BCCI ensured that they did not play into the hands of emotional India fans and did not sack Chetan.
What continued to annoy the fans were some poor selection decisions: Not giving Sanju Samson and Prithvi Shaw a chance in T20is, not selecting Sarfaraz Khan even after his pile of runs in domestic cricket among others.
With Chetan gone, the BCCI will soon start the hunt for the new chief selector. The process usually takes time as candidates submit their nomination, are shortlisted and then interviewed by the Cricket Advisory Committee, which consists of Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjape and Sulakshana Naik.
