On Tuesday, BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma was caught in an ugly controversy after he allegedly revealed classified selection matters during a sting operation conducted by a TV channel.
Chetan Sharma who was recently reinstated by the BCCI after being removed following India’s showing in the T20 World Cup in Australia disclosed some controversial information about prominent players and the BCCI officials.
He alleged that a lot of players take injections to expedite their return to competitive cricket despite being 80 to 85 percent fit. He also alleged that there was a difference of opinion between him and the team management over Bumrah‘s comeback from a stress fracture for the T20I series against Australia in September.
The BCCI chief selector also confirmed that there was an ego tussle between former captain Kohli and former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. As per the reports, the BCCI is now looking into the matter and at the future of Chetan Sharma as national selectors are bound by contract and not supposed to interact with the media.
“It will be (BCCI secretary) Jay’s (Shah) call as to what will be Chetan’s future. The question is whether T20 skipper Hardik Pandya or ODI and Test captain Rohit Sharma would like to sit with Chetan in a selection meeting knowing that he has let out internal discussions,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
As Sharma finds himself embroiled in a controversy, social media is buzzing with reactions from fans to it. There were many who expressed their reactions by sharing hilarious memes on Twitter.
