Sunil Joshi is the most experienced person in the selection panel. He has also played International Cricket for India. Sunil has played 15 test matches and 69 One day International matches for the country. He was a former left-arm spinner, whose domestic cricket career was stretched from 1992 to 2010. In that span, Sunil took 615 first-class wickets to his name and had some memorable moments when he played for India. One of these memorable moments came against South Africa in 1999 when Sunil Joshi picked up 5 wickets and gave away just 6 runs.
After retirement, Sunil Joshi worked as bowling coach and bowling consultant for many domestic and International teams.
Indian Cricket Team Selectors Latest News – Harvinder Singh, on the other hand, was a former pace bowler for India. He represented India for just 3 test matches and 16 One Day International matches. But before that, Singh started his career when playing for Punjab. He then went on to play for the Railways and played in the 1990s to the 2000s era. The former Punjab pace bowler has played 109 first-class matches and his last game was in the year, 2008.
This duo of spin and the pace bowler will join a team of Devang Gandhi, Jatin Paranjpe, and Sarandeep Singh. These three members are already working with the BCCI’s selection panel. Even though the new constitution of BCCI doesn’t need a zonal representation, but still the Cricket Advisory Members have followed the old policy.
And despite that, the Cricket Advisory Committee has brought Sunil Joshi from Karnataka and Harvinder Singh from Punjab and Railways. Now, these two will take over the vacated positions from south and north respectively.
Indian Cricket Team Selectors Latest News – The first job for the newly appointed selection members would be to select India’s squad for the three-match One Day International series which would be played against South Africa at home. This series will start from 12th March 2020.
Then this selected squad would be reviewed by the Cricket Advisory Committee members. This is a new development where CAC members will review the work of selectors. The CAC members will review the candidates after a one year period and the CAC members can also make any recommendations to the Board of control cricket in India.
