During a TV sting operation, India’s chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma leaves his position


The chairman of selectors for India, Chetan Sharma, has resigned from his position as a result of being exposed by a TV sting. According to a report from ANI, BCCI secretary Jay Shah accepted his resignation.

On February 14, a video showed Sharma discussing a number of national team-related topics, including reported friction between Virat Kohli and former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and Jasprit Bumrah’s injury, was made public by an Indian TV news program. Sharma may not have been aware that he was being secretly recorded at the time.

“Yes, Chetan’s resignation has been accepted by BCCI secretary Jay Shah after being offered. After the sting, his position had become unsustainable “PTI was told by a top BCCI source. He gave his resignation willingly and wasn’t requested to do so.

After India’s semi-final loss in the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, the BCCI disbanded the whole selection panel in November and welcomed new applicants. Sharma was only restored as top selector in January. Up until the new panel was selected and Sharma was named chairman once more, Sharma continued to do his duties.

Salil Ankola, SS Das, Subroto Banerjee, and S Sharath remain on the selection committee for India in his absence, and the BCCI has not yet named a replacement for him as chairman.

From 1984 and 1994, Sharma, now 57, participated in 65 ODIs and 23 Test matches for India.
