After the new guidelines of the Committee of Administrators (CoA), the meeting where the team selection for the upcoming tour to the West Indies was to take place has been postponed which was to take place on Friday, 19 July.
As per the new CoA’s guidelines, the Chairman of Selectors will replace BCCI’s General Secretary as the convener of the selection meetings. The new guidelines are in accordance with the new constitution of BCCI.
The meeting will be held on Saturday or Sunday as the players’ fitness reports will be available till Friday evening.
The CoA stated, “The Committee of Administrators have been informed that the practice of the Hon. Secretary convening and attending selection committee meetings has continued even after the New BCCI Constitution has become effective.” Adding, “Further, it is learnt that the selection committee continue to address emails to Hon. Secretary to get his approval in accordance to any changes in the team.”
BCCI’s officials stated that it took eleven months for it to implement since the constitution was registered in August 2018.
