By January 2023, the BCCI is all set to recruit a fresh committee of selectors who they hope will perform their duties well.
Some of the former members have also applied for the position of selector who are Chetan Sharma and Harvinder Singh.
Moreover, some very well-known cricketers have applied for the selector post some of which are Maninder Singh, Shiv Sunder Das, Nayan Mongia, and Ajay Ratra.
The deadline given by the BCCI for the submission of applications was 28th November.
BCCI has sacked Chetan Sharma and Co after a disastrous year for Team India
The BCCI has already sacked the members of the current selection panel that was led by Chetan Sharma.
This is because India failed to make it to the finals of this year’s Asia Cup as well as the T20 World Cup.
However, the BCCI requested the selection committee to remain as they overlooked the domestic competitions such as the knockouts of the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the traditional Cooch Behar Trophy.
Moreover, the Cricket Advisory Committee or CAC is all set to hold a meeting tomorrow.
Ashok Malhotra, Sulakshana Naik, and Jatin Paranjpe are the members of this committee.

Apart from the names mentioned above, some of the other names that have come to the fore are those of Venkatesh Prasad, S Sharath, Mukund Parmar, Sameer Dighe, and Salil Ankola.
