BCCI Seeks Applications for Senior National Men’s Selector for Ajit Agarkar-Led Committee

2 min read

The BCCI has invited applications for one national selector for the senior men’s team. However, the advertisement on their website does not specify which active selector would be replaced from the current five-member panel chaired by Ajit Agarkar. As per the BCCI constitution, the board selects one selector from each zone (north, south, east, west and central) with the most experienced member heading the panel. No selector can serve for more than five years combined (junior and senior panels).

Currently, there are two selectors from the west, both from the Mumbai Cricket Association, and no one from the north. The other members in the panel are Salil Ankola (west), SS Das (east), S Sharath (south) and Subroto Banerjee (central). It is possible the BCCI will want to have someone from the north in the committee, and one of the two selectors from the west might have to make way.

Interested applicants have until January 25 to submit their candidature. The BCCI will then screen the applications before inviting shortlisted candidates for interviews. Applicants need to meet certain eligibility criteria in terms of playing experience. The Agarkar-led committee has selected the India squad for the first two of five Tests against England at home beginning January 25. The squad for the remaining three Tests is likely to be picked after the second Test, which ends on February 6. India’s next assignment after the England Tests is the T20 World Cup, which follows immediately after IPL 2024.
