BCCI seems to be in action mode since the first day of the year. Today, that is, January 1, there was a BCSAI review meeting. The recent performance of the Indian cricket team in the T20 World was discussed at the meeting. After the World Cup debacle, the big question was whether the T20 team captaincy will be taken from Rohit Sharma. An important update has come out of today’s meeting regarding this matter.

Threat to Rohit’s captaincy?

There is no threat to Rohit Sharma’s captaincy in ODI and Test cricket as of now as, according to sources, the board’s higher-ups have not found anything unsatisfactory about his captaincy in traditional formats. Captain Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid attended the review meeting called by BCCI Secretary Jay Shah. The meeting was also attended by the previous head of the selection committee, Chetan Sharma, the head of the NCA, VVS Laxman, and the chairman of the board, Roger Binny. The focus is on the World Test Championship and hopes of India reaching the final are high.

Preparing for the World Cup

Apart from this, the ODI World Cup will also take place in 2023. New T20 captain Hardik Pandya did not attend the meeting. Hardik is in Mumbai for the T20 series against Sri Lanka from Tuesday. A BCCI source said: “Rohit is captaining both the ODI and Test teams and there has been no talk of his future captaining these two formats. His captaincy record in Tests and ODIs is excellent.” It was also decided that the 20-player pool would be rotated until the 2023 World Cup. Chetan Sharma, who participated in the review meeting, may once again be the chairman of the senior national selection committee. Even if he doesn’t become president, he can be the representative of the northern region. Former fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad’s name is also making the rounds in the South Zone, but the selection of him is not certain.

Chetan Sharma may return as chief selector

The inclusion of Chetan Sharma in drawing up the roadmap for the preparations for the 2023 World Cup is a great sign. The source said: “Had Chetan Sharma not been asked, he would not have applied for the position at all. This in itself is a sign. India has to play the World Cup in ten months. With the presence of Chetan and Harvinder, there will be continuity with the three new members.” It is understood that SS Das is likely to be selected from the East Zone as he has 21 Test experience. From the west, the names of Mukund Parmar, Salil Ankola and Sameer Dighe from Gujarat are in the running.
