Chetan Sharma resigns as BCCI selection panel chairman

Following a news channel sting operation, former India pace bowler Chetan Sharma has resigned from his position.

Following a news channel sting operation where he was allegedly seen divulging sensitive information, former India pace bowler Chetan Sharma has resigned from his position as chairman of the senior selection committee.

“Yes, Chetan has tendered his resignation to BCCI secretary Jay Shah and his resignation has been accepted. His position had become untenable after the sting operation. He resigned voluntarily and wasn’t asked to resign,” a senior BCCI source said.

With other members of the selection committee, Chetan Sharma was in Kolkata for the Ranji Trophy final between Bengal and Saurashtra. They were there to choose the Irani Cup team. Chetan claimed that many players take injections to hasten their return to competitive cricket despite being 80–85% fit during the Zee News sting operation.

The former India pace bowler further claimed that he and the team management disagreed on whether Jasprit Bumrah should play in the T20I series against Australia in September after recovering from a stress fracture. Additionally, he asserted that Deepak Hooda, Umesh Yadav, and T20I captain Hardik Pandya frequently paid him visits at his home.

Additionally, Chetan discussed the friendship between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and claimed that Kohli and former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had an ego clash. According to information obtained, Chetan’s remarks were not well received by the BCCI’s top officials, and the members of the current national squad lost faith in him as a result.

Following India’s elimination from the T20 World Cup in Australia’s semi-final, Chetan and the entire selection committee had previously been fired. He reapplied for the position and was given the new chairmanship. Read More: WPL 2024 Auction: Full Squad of All Teams
