The five good men
Looking at the selection of the national selectors by the BCCI, an editorial in the Indian Express states that for once the BCCI can be spared the customary brickbats. In fact, it might even deserve a pat on the back for raising the bar in choosing the national selectors and not succumbing to narrow-minded regional pressures.
In BCCI president N. Srinivasan’s words, the need for zonal representatives this time had to do with the geography of India and not with any clandestine policy of appeasement. Looking at the five good men the board’s roped in, it’s difficult to disagree with him.
