BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma resigns after ‘Sting Operation’ fiasco

Sharma’s resignation, the selection panel’s strength has once again come down to four.

Days after a sting operation put Chetan Sharma in the spotlight, the chairman of the senior selection committee tendered his resignation after the Board of Control for Cricket in India asked him to do so for breaching his contract by divulging team information. Sharma, who was in Kolkata for the Ranji Trophy final, is understood to have sent his resignation on Friday morning and it has been accepted immediately by the BCCI.

Sharma was heard in the sting operation film suggesting that Indian players use injections to keep in shape, which wasn’t at all controversial. Sharma further stated that former India captain Virat Kohli attempted to discredit Sourav Ganguly, who was the then-president of the BCCI, because Kohli believed Ganguly was to blame for his losing the ODI captaincy.

Sharma had already lost the confidence of the BCCI and the team’s management. Sharma had revealed only a small portion of the conversations to the media, raising questions about how players would be able to speak openly with him.

Sharma’s resignation has reduced the size of the selection panel to four members once more. All four of the current leaders—Subroto Banerjee, Salil Ankola, S. Sharath, and SS. The BCCI made the decision to replace the whole screening committee and seek new applicants after the T20 World Cup ended. As few people expressed interest in serving on the panel, the BCCI eventually returned to selecting Sharma as chairman.
