Former India bowler and a member of the senior selection committee, Abey Kuruvilla has recently resigned from the panel.
According to recent BCCI guidelines, a member of the selection panel cannot serve for more than five years in the position.
Thus, BCCI has two new roadblocks ahead of them.
They will now be working to decide who will take over Kuruvilla’s position as the selector and who will lead Team India in Tests.
According to some reports, BCCI may offer Kuruvilla a new position, that of General Manager (game development).
Kuruvilla also faced some heat this year.
After a former member of MPCA, Sanjeev Gupta filed a case against Kuruvilla, he was forced to resign from his position.
The remaining four members in the selection committee are Chetan Sharma, Sunil Joshi, Harvinder Singh and Debasis Mohanty.
It was Chetan Sharma’s decision to remove Kohli from white-ball captaincy and give it to Rohit Sharma instead.
Under this selection panel, India have suffered two major losses.
The first was the early exit from the T20 World Cup.
The second was the recent losses to South Africa in ODIs and Tests.
BCCI have also opened up applications for Kuruvilla’s position to new candidates.
