What’s in a name: Tendulkar, Dhoni, Sehwag’s CVs for national selectors’ post sent in spam email | cricket news


New Delhi: When BCCI officials opened the mail box to check the CVs of potential candidates for the national selection committee, they found applications from Sachin Tendulkar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virender Sehwag.
That was not enough, Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq had also offered his candidature for the post.
It’s just that all these resumes were posted using spam email ids of fraudsters wanting to have fun at BCCI’s expense.
The BCCI has received over 600 e-mail applications for the five-member selection panel and some of them have come from fake IDs claiming to be Tendulkar, Dhoni, Sehwag and Inzamam.
On a serious note, the Cricket Advisory Committee is expected to shortlist 10 names for high-profile positions.
“Around 600 applications have been received and some of them have come from fake IDs claiming to be Dhoni, Sehwag and Tendulkar. They are simply wasting the time of BCCI by doing this.”
A BCCI source told PTI, “The CAC will shortlist 10 candidates and then shortlist the final five. The process will be completed soon.
Last month, the BCCI had sacked the Chetan Sharma-led selection panel after the team’s semi-final exit from the T20 World Cup. However, this panel has not been finalized with his successors. The committee had also followed the first round of Ranji Trophy and is monitoring the second round. Debashish Mohanty watches the Bengal vs Himachal Pradesh match in Kolkata.
The BCCI Apex Council on Wednesday could not clear the central contracts of the players as the selection committee is yet to be constituted and its inputs are needed before finalizing the list.
The CAC comprising Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe and Sulakshana Naik, which was appointed earlier this month, is expected to meet soon to complete the task.
Apart from finalizing the central contracts, the selection panel’s initial task will be to pick the teams for the home series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand starting January 3.
