Sourav Ganguly opens up on the future of selection committee chairman MSK Prasad

XtraTime Web Desk: Indian selection committee chairman MSK Prasad’s stint has come to an end on Sunday as being asked about the matter BCCI President Sourav Ganguly stated “you cannot go beyond your tenure”.

Prasad’s departure means the Ganguly-led BCCI has gone by the old constitution that has a provision of a maximum of four-year term for the selection committee. The amended constitution had a maximum five-year term.

While Prasad and Gagan Khoda were appointed in 2015, Jatin Paranjpe, Sarandeep Singh and Devang Gandhi joined in 2016 but as per the BCCI chief, none of the panel members would continue.

“Tenures are finished. You cannot go beyond tenure. They have done a good job,” Ganguly said after the BCCI’s 88th Annual General Meeting.

“We will fix a term for selectors and it is not right to appoint selectors every year.”

The Indian team enjoyed success during the five-man panel’s tenure with the positives far outweighing the negatives, but it often found itself at the receiving end of relentless criticism owing to their limited international careers collectively.
