Sourav Ganguly, the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI,) on the 20th of December, announced he would soon constitute a Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC.)
Mr. Ganguly said the CAC would be formed in the upcoming days for the selection of players and would have a tenure of 3 years.
Sourav Ganguly addressed the media and said, “The CAC will be appointed in a couple of days. It will only be for one meeting to appoint the selectors as the head coach has already been picked.”
Previously, M.S.K. Prasad was the head of the CAC panel. His tenure ended recently. The other members of the CAC panel are Gagan Khoda, Jatin Paranjpe, Sarandeep Singh and Devang Gandhi. While M.S.K. Prasad and Gagan Khoda’s tensures ended, Jatin Paranjpe, Sarandeep Singh and Devang Gandhi still have a year left before their tenures end.
With the major issue of conflict of interest, the appointment of the CAC members is a matter of concern for the BCCI.
Players like Sachin Tendulkar, V.V.S. Laxman and Kapil Dev could not take over as CAC members due to conflict of interest, which is against the BCCI’s ethics.
The BCCI President is expected to soon appoint the CAC members.
However, an official announcement about when the CAC would be constituted is yet to be made.
Stay tuned for further updates.
