BCCI names MSK Prasad, who played only 6 Test matches, chairman of national selectors

Great catch for MSK but Twitter is not happy

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday named former Indian wicketkeeper Mannava Sri Kanth Prasad as the new chairman of the selection committee.

The decision was taken in the 87th Annual General Meeting (AGM). The meeting was chaired by BCCI President and MP Anurag Thakur.

IANS reported that a five-member selection panel was formed in the meeting.

The panel is headed by Prasad (South Zone). The panel also includes off-spinner Sarandeep Singh (North Zone), ex-batsmen Gagan Khoda (Central Zone), Devang Gandhi (East Zone) and Jatin Paranjpe (West Zone).

Though, it was a great catch for MSK himself, Twitter is not happy with the selection panel.
