Sunil Joshi Opens Up On His Priorities As India’s Chief Selector


Former India international Sunil Joshi has been the centre of attraction ever since his name broke out as the chairperson of All India men's selection committee. The three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) led by former all-rounder Madan Lal put an end to all the speculations naming MSK Prasad's deputy on March 4 (Wednesday). 

The advisory committee also picked Harvinder Singh in place of departing Gagan Khoda after his term came to an end. Joshi and Harvinder will combine the incumbent selectors Devang Gandhi and Jatin Paranjpe, and Sarandeep Singh to complete the five-member selection committee. The panel will have some tough calls to make in the coming days as India look to come out of the New Zealand drubbing.

Acknowledging the challenges the chair has to offer, Sunil Joshi is confident to serve Indian cricket for good. The former left-arm spinner is ready to do everything to have the management on the same page with the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year looming large. 

“I know there are a lot of challenges. I have to take up the job formally first and see how best I can get the group along. I will do everything in my capacity to ensure that the team management and committee members are on the same page for the betterment of Indian cricket,” Sunil Joshi, the newly-elected chairman of selectors said.

Meanwhile, apart from the recent debacle conundrum, Sunil Joshi-led panel will have to deal with the sage of MS Dhoni's return to international cricket. The legendary cricketer has been on a sabbatical since the ICC World Cup 2019 exit and will return to action in the upcoming Indian Premier League. The panel will get together in a couple of days when they sit to pick the Indian squad for the upcoming three-match ODI series against South Africa.
