BCCI Selection Committee: Team India will get a new 'selector' before the T20 World Cup! 'These' three veterans applied leader

Leader Online Desk : BCCI Selection Committee : A new face may join the Indian cricket team's selection committee next month. Presently the post of selector is vacant from North division quota. It has to be paid. BCCI had recently called for applications for this. According to a report, Nikhil Chopra, Mithun Manhas and Ajay Ratra have applied for the post. A decision will be taken soon. Scrutiny of applications will now take place. The selected faces will then be called for an interview before the Cricket Advisory Committee. The new selector is expected to join the committee before the 2024 T20 World Cup. The new selection committee will select Team India for the World Cup to be held in June.
