According to BCCI sources, the top BCCI officials will review India’s dismal performance in the T20 World Cup with captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid on January 1. NCA chief VVS Laxman, who was with the Indian team in Dravid’s absence, is also expected to attend the meeting. The meeting is to be held in Mumbai ahead of the limited overs match against Sri Lanka starting on January 3.
England had thrashed India by 10 wickets in the World Cup semi-finals, extending their barren run in ICC events since 2013 when they won the Champions Trophy under MS Dhoni. The last world title came at home in 2011.
“Head coach Rahul Dravid and NCA chief VVS Laxman are expected to analyze India’s performance with BCCI officials. The roadmap for the 2023 World Cup is also expected to be discussed,” the source added.
The Chetan Sharma-led selection panel was ousted after the World Cup, but a new panel is yet to be formed.
The committee was sacked in November, but it continues to track the ongoing Ranji Trophy and also pick the squads for three T20Is and ODIs against Sri Lanka.
The Cricket Advisory Committee, constituted earlier this month, met in Mumbai on Friday to shortlist candidates for the selectors’ posts.
The panel includes Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe and Sulakshana Naik.
Chetan Sharma and Harvinder Singh have reapplied for the job, while others who have applied include former India fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad and former India wicketkeeper Nayan Mongia.
