MSK Prasad was appointed back in 2015 as the Indian chief selector.
MSK Prasad’s time as the Indian chief selector comes to an end. The decision was taken by BCCI President Sourav Ganguly in the 88th Annual General Meeting held on Sunday. With this decision, it shows that the board has stuck with their old decision of sticking to a four-year tenure for the selection committee.
Back in 2015, Prasad was appointed as the chief selector. During the four years that he was part of the committee, he has received countless criticism from fans and other former cricketers over his selection policy. One of the decisions that got him the most ‘exposure’ was when he picked Vijay Shankar over Ambati Rayudu in 2019 World Cup squad. After the early exit from the tournament, people expected that his time as chief selector would come to an end.
The BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly, said that the selection committee’s time is over. Over the past four years, they did well and that they will fix how selectors are selected. ‘Tenures are finished. You cannot go beyond tenure. They have done a good job. We will fix a term for selectors and it is not right to appoint selectors every year’.
There are also reports that the BCCI panel decided to remove the policy pertaining to the tenure cap for its officials. Additionally, it may work in favour of Ganguly and could extend his time as the Indian cricket chief.
India will face the West Indies in three T20s and three ODIs beginning on December 6. To find out more about India’s upcoming matches, visit Betwala’s page.
