Chetan Sharma, the chairman of the All-India Selection Committee for the BCCI, is said to have resigned from his position in light of the recent sting operation’s controversy. Sharma most recently took part in a Zee News undercover investigation that has rocked Indian cricket.
The 57-year-old made several other contentious claims in the film, including that there was a severe ego conflict between the management and the Indian cricket team. Following the sting operation, the head of the selection committee has experienced a significant criticism from fans over the comments made about prominent cricketers for the national team, including Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
Chetan reportedly submitted his resignation to BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, who accepted it.for him to leave the position. Previously, Chetan was fired following India’s abrupt withdrawal from the T20 World Cup in Australia, but strangely, he was promptly rehired.
To have a single white-ball captain, Kohli had to be taken out: C. T. Sharma
He made several comments about the white-ball leadership during the undercover operation. In order to have one white-ball leader, Chetan and his committee decided to remove Kohli from the captaincy position.
Selectors are responsible for removing a captain from the team. He was ousted from the ODI captaincy because we only wanted one captain for white-ball matches. Even he (Kohli) is aware that this is standard practise. The selectors agreed to Virat’s resignation as T20I skipper after his announcement.In the widely shared video, Sharma stated that it was in their minds to also remove him from the ODI captaincy.
He also discussed the criticism the management received from the supporters when Sanju Samson was left off the starting lineup in some games.
Even though the resignation has not yet been officially confirmed by the BCCI, Jay Shah was anticipated to make a significant choice over Chetan Sharma’s dismissal after the sting operation.
