New Delhi/Cuttack: The coach of Odisha Ranji team and former India fast bowler Debasis Mohanty has been appointed as a member of BCCI’s junior selection committee.
The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators on Friday chose him after the Supreme Court restored the number of members in each selection committee to five.
The post had remained vacant after Venkatesh Prasad had resigned from his position as chief selector in March.
The selection committee had been reduced to a three-member panel as per the directions of the Lodha Committee, but the SC on August 9 restored the number to five.
The other selectors in the junior committee are Ashish Kapoor, Rakesh Parikh, Gyanendra Pandey and Amit Sharma.
