Big controversy in BCCI
MSK Prasad, the main selector of the Indian cricket team, has resigned, but the names of the new selectors have not yet been announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The major controversy has come while the process of appointing chief selectors has been going on.
Former National Team spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan had sent the application form for the vacant post of MSK Prasad. His mail to the BCCI was amazingly erased. And with this, there created much controversy in Indian cricket.
An official of the BCCI said,
“Sivaramakrishnan sent an e-mail at around 4:16pm on January 22. The deadline for sending the application was January 24. In fact, a special e-mail address was created to apply for the post of selector. 21 applications were also emailed.”
According to a source in the Indian Cricket Board, “It was done with a dishonest purpose. There needs to be a full investigation into this issue. BCCI should talk to Sivaramakrishnan about this. If need be, check his sent e-mails.”
After the departure of chief selector MSK Prasad in January, several former stars are applying for the post. Sivaramakrishnan is very much ahead of all in experience. But there creates such a debate about him.
