National selectors off overseas tour

The cricket board has implemented a policy that will not send out national selectors abroad with the Indian team when it plays overseas, it was announced by BCCI’s vice president Ravi Savant to reporters today on April 14, 2014. Hence foreign tours have been erased from the schedule of the national selectors as of date and they will not be traveling out of country anymore.

Savant spoke about the policy as he was discussing the matter about the decision of MCA to re-appoint chief national selector Sandeep Patil as the head of its selection panel after the former India batsman quit the post last April. He also added that the MCA is all set to appoint coaches for various age groups for the next season which included the senior cricket team as well.

The coaches will be finalized today on April 14, 2014 for each team and appointed only after successful completion of interviews conducted by the managing committee. He spoke on the minimal requisites for players making it to the Mumbai side. Savant state that the probable players would have to play at least five local club matches in the elite group to make them eligible for becoming a part of the Mumbai side.
