The life of Chetan Sharma’s selection committee is expected to last for a few more days or a week as the Indian Cricket Control Board (BCCI) sent the country’s selectors to the service of the Ranji Trophy. Sunil Joshi, Debasis Mohanty, Harvinder Singh and chairman Chetan were all asked to report on the third-round Ranji games that began at various centers on Tuesday (27 December).
The clear implication of this decision is that the predecessor committee will select members for his series of whiteball games against Sri Lanka starting January 3 in Mumbai. A committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, and an announcement is expected within the next 24 hours.
The focus of the selection committee is his two seniors, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Cricbuzz believes the skipper’s thumb injury, which kept him out of the Test series against Bangladesh, is still healing and needs more rest. It was also revealed that Kohli had asked for a break for T20Is, a pause or pause for selectors wanting to try out new players for T20Is.
The selector is likely to remain in the experimental squad for the three-game series, with Hardik Pandya handed over the leadership role entrusted to him in New Zealand shortly after the World Cup in Australia. Ravindra Jadeja could return with Yash Dhull, a player to watch. However, both Rohit and Kohli are expected to return for his ODI series. This is important considering the World Cup in India will be held later this year.
BCCI’s notice was not sent out until Monday evening, so the selectors had a four-day lunge so he could reach his assigned center from his second day of the game. While Joshi is in Hyderabad, Mohanty arrives in Mumbai for the Mumbai vs. Saurashtra match. Chairman Sharma and Singh are in Delhi. Selection committee meetings are naturally held online later in the day, as selection members are located in different parts of the country.
