Under fire due to a stinging status report filed by the Supreme Court-appointed Justice RM Lodha Committee, the BCCI is likely to remove senior national selectors Gagan Khoda and Jatin Paranjpe when the members meet for SGM this Friday.
The Lodha Panel has recommended to dissolve the current BCCI regime and wants all decisions taken by BCCI post the Supreme Court verdict on July 18, to be superseded. While there is a possibility that the entire selection committee may be overhauled but Khoda and Paranjpe’s ouster now looks imminent as their appointments were in direct violation of the Lodha Panel’s recommendations.
Both Khoda (2 ODIs) and Paranjpe (4 ODIs) have never played Test cricket which the Lodha Panel made mandatory for appointment in senior selection panel which they wanted to be restricted to three members.
While Khoda was from the earlier panel, Mumbai batsman Paranjpe was newly inducted in the panel during the BCCI AGM on September 21.The three others in the panel are MSK Prasad, Devang Gandhi and Sarandeep Singh.
