Former India wicketkeeper Sameer Dighe has been appointed as a Mumbai selector. Dighe, 40, along with ex-Mumbai offspinner Kiran Mokashi were the two faces in the four-member committee, replacing Shishir Hattangadi, who resigned midway last season, and former Indian fast bowler Abey Kuruvilla, who had completed his term.

Dighe played six Tests and 23 ODIs for India, scoring 141 and 256 runs respectively. He also scored 3958 runs at 35.98 in the 83 first-class games he played.

The panel, appointed by the Cricket Improvement Committee of the Mumbai Cricket Association led by former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar, will be headed by former Mumbai left-arm spinner Padmakar Shivalkar, and also includes ex-Mumbai fast bowler Abdul Ismail. Pravin Amre, who guided Mumbai to their 38th Ranji Trophy victory last season, will continue as the coach.
