Former KKR Player Applies For The Chief Selector Post, Appointment To Be Done Before Asia Cup 2023

A day back former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar left the coaching duties of Delhi Capitals and it was officially announced by the DC management. Now, it has been confirmed by a reliable source that Agarkar is applying for the role of chief selector. He applied for this post on Thursday when BCCI promised to increase the salary for this designation.

The chairman of selectors in the Indian Cricket Board receives a salary of Rs 1 crore, while the remaining panel members are paid Rs 90 lakh each. However, Agarkar, who works as a commentator and coach gets a higher annual salary which is more than the package of the current chief selector’s post. If Agarkar gets appointed for the role, BCCI would definitely change the structure of its payment. The final decision on the new name of chief selectors will be out before the Asia Cup 2023.

Agarkar has experience in 191 ODIs, 26 Tests, and 4 T20I games. Not only this the bowler has also played 42 games in Indian Premier League. If we look at the current selection committee, the four members involved have a combined international experience of 55 international matches.

While talking to InsideSport, a BCCI official said, “The CAC has the mandate to pick a selector who can stand up to the high-profile team management in case there are differences.”

Chetan Sharma who was the last chief selector for the BCCI was sacked after he revealed many unheard stories of Team India during a sting operation.
