Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, Venkatesh Prasad and Sunil Joshi among five shortlisted for two remaining spots in selection committee
- The likes of Ajit Agarkar, Chetan Sharma and Nayan Mongia missed the cut.
The senior men's national selection committee has two vacant spots remaining and according to reports, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, Venkatesh Prasad, Sunil Joshi, Harvinder Singh, and Rajesh Chauhan have been shortlisted for interviews with the Cricket Advisory Committee.
The other 35 applicants included former India players Ajit Agarkar, Chetan Sharma and Nayan Mongia. Prasad worked on the junior team selection panel while Joshi has worked with Ranji teams as well as international sides.
The BCCI chucked out the zonal criteria for selection of the panel from 2016 after the Lodha Committee recommendations. The new selection panel, which already consists of Sarandeep Singh, Devang Gandhi, and Jatin Paranjape, will pick the squad for the three-match home ODI series against South Africa.
