India's selection committee set to be shortened to three

Gagan Khoda and Jatin Paranjpe will be excluded from India's selection panel in order to meet the Lodha Committee's recommendations. The move, which had been approved by the Supreme Court on July 2016, should see the selection committee reduced to just three members.

Having picked the squads for the upcoming ODI and T20I series against England, the selection panel's next assignment will be for the one-off Test against Bangladesh next month. 

In sharp contrast to the prevailing system of  BCCI choosing the five-member selection committee through zonal method, only three members will now form the panel with all of them possessing Test caps and retired for at least five years.

Both Khoda and Paranjpe represented India only in a handful of ODIs back in 1998. While the former used to open the innings, the latter mainly played in the middle-order.
