Ajit Agarkar, the former India fast bowler, has been named chairman of selectors for Indian men’s team.
Agarkar, 45, filled the position which had been vacant since February after Chetan Sharma stepped down in the wake up of a sting operation conducted on him by an Indian television network.
Agarkar is the fifth member of the India men’s selection panel which already includes SS Das, Salil Ankola, S Banerjee and S Sharath.
Having played 26 Test and 191 ODIs, Agarkar is the senior-most member of the panel and as per BCCI rules becomes its chairman. First on their plate is selecting the side for the five T20Is against West Indies starting August 3.
