BCCI CAC recommends Joshi & Harvinder for selector post


Mumbai  The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising of Madan Lal, R.P. Singh and Sulakshana Naik have suggested the names of Sunil Joshi and Harvinder Singh for the position of the two India selectors that were left vacant after the tenures of M.S.K. Prasad and Gagan Khoda got over.

The trio met at the BCCI HQ in Mumbai on Wednesday and while they recommended the name of Joshi for the chief selector’s post, Harvinder is the other name they have picked out of the list which also included Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, Venkatesh Prasad and Rajesh Chauhan.

While the rule says that the ‘the senior most Test cap from among the members of the committee shall be appointed the chairman’, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly earlier made it clear that the most capped Test cricketer would be the one heading the team of selectors. “It will be the one with the most Tests,” he had said.

Interestingly, Joshi is also senior to Harvinder when it comes to the clause of being the ‘senior most Test cap’.
