Jai Shah should be fired first, how has he been brought about; Fans protest

After the defeat in the T20 World Cup, BCCI had expelled the senior selection committee the other day. The chair of the entire selection committee headed by Chetan Sharma was thrown.

The BCCI announced its decision after India’s miserable defeat in the World Cup. Later BCCI also released a letter inviting the new selection committee.

But the fans have come with a strong protest against the BCCI’s action. The fans said that the selectors should not be sacked but that BCCI secretary Jayshah should be sacked urgently.

Some of the fans tweeted that the BCCI should also make a decision to drop the players who continue to be in bad form in the team.

“The first thing BCCI needs to do is get rid of Jai Shah, who has no choice. As well as the coach of Team India, Rohit, Rahul, Bhuvi and Ashwin. Why BCCI is not ready to get rid of any of them,’ said the tweet.

In the last T-20 World Cup, Team India failed to reach the final and lost. The selectors were defeated in the final of the World Test Championship and lost in the Asia Cup.

Apart from Chairman Chetan Sharma, Sunil Joshi, Harvinder Singh and Devashish Mohanty were members of the selection committee.

BCCI has invited applications for Men’s Senior Team Selectors. Last date to apply is November 28. There are five member vacancies in the BCCI selection committee. According to the letter released by the BCCI, only players who have retired at least five years ago will be considered for the posts.

The letter also states that those who have played seven Tests, 30 first-class matches or 20 first-class matches with 10 ODIs for Team India can become members of the selection committee.

Also those who are currently members of other committees cannot apply for this. A senior team selector usually has a tenure of four years.
