The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) head selector, Chetan Sharma, resigned following controversy surrounding his alleged remarks in a sting operation. Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, reportedly accepted his resignation. During the sting operation, Sharma is said to have made some strange comments against Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, and a few other team members. Although the BCCI has not make an official statement on the matter, it now seems that Sharma has been relieved of his duties.
In the sting operation conducted by Zee News, Sharma allegedly revealed details of his private chats with head coach Rahul Dravid and batsman Virat Kohli.
According to Sharma, a lot of sportsmen, even those who are 80 to 85 percent fit, utilise injections to speed their return to competitive cricket. Additionally, the ex-Indian fast bowler stated that he and the team management couldn’t agree on whether Bumrah should participate in the T20I series against Australia in September after he had recovered from a stress fracture.
Bumrah is still out and is anticipated to miss the whole four-game Border-Gavaskar series in addition to the next three-match ODI series.
Sharma further said that former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and former skipper Kohli had a spat over egos.
