BCCI Names Three-Member Cricket Advisory Committee


Three months after taking over the chair, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the name of the members of the three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). The panel includes former India cricketers – Madan Lal, RP Singh, and Sulakshana Naik. The last committee comprising of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad, and Shantha Rangaswamy had resigned from the post after receiving conflict of interest notices. 

The committee will work together for one year and during this period they will have to make some tough calls. Their key area of work will be zeroing on the national selectors – both men and women along with appointing a head coach for the women's team. Notably, WV Raman's tenure as the head coach of the women's side will come to an end in December 2020.

The current panel for the men's selection committee has been under the scanner several times. The committee led by MSK Prasad has made quite a few surprising calls including Ambati Rayudu's snub during the World Cup. Many experts and former cricketers questioned the credibility of the current panel. The current CAC picked by BCCI will have to take everything into consideration before picking the next set of selectors. 

Madan Lal, the seniormost member of the Cricket Advisory Committee, has played 39 Tests and 67 ODIs was a part of India's 1983 world cup winning side. On the other hand, RP Singh has represented India in 14 Tests, 58 ODIs and 10 T20Is while Sulakshana Naik has featured in 2 Tests, 46 ODIs and 31 T20Is.
