Chetan Sharma, the BCCI’s chief selector, resigned from his position on Friday.
Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI, accepted his resignation after receiving it by Chetan Sharma
This occurs just a few days after Sharma became embroiled in controversy for allegedly disclosing sensitive selection information in the course of a TV channel’s sting operation.
Sharma was seen during the sting operation casting doubt on players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah. Sharma was recently reinstated by the BCCI after being removed following India’s performance in the T20 World Cup in Australia. During the Zee News sting, Sharma allegedly disclosed his private conversations with Virat Kohli and head coach Rahul Dravid.
Sharma had alleged that a lot of players take injections to expedite their return to competitive cricket despite being 80 to 85 per cent fit.
The former India pace bowler also alleged that there was a difference of opinion between him and the team management over Bumrah’s return from a stress fracture for the T20I series against Australia in September.
