After sting operation, BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma resigns

| @indiablooms | 17 Feb 2023, 12:32 pm

Mumbai/IBNS: After a sting operation on him came to light, chief of men's cricket selection committee, Chetan Sharma, resigned from his post on Friday, media reports said.

Sharma was reportedly asked by the Indian cricket board (BCCI) to step down.

His resignation was accepted by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah.

Sharma was reappointed as the chief selector in January two months after the selection panel was removed by the board.

In the sting operation, Sharma talked about players faking fitness, ego clash between ex-BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and former skipper Virat Kohli et al.

The sting operation, which was carried out by Zee Media, apparently embarrassed the world's richest cricket board.
