NEW DELHI: The Indian cricket board has appointed former India wicketkeeper-batsman MSK Prasad as the chairman of the five-member selection committee, defying recommendations of the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha committee.

The other members of the committee include Gagan Khoda, Sarandeep Singh, Devang Gandhi and Jatin Paranjape. The Lodha committee had recommended setting up a three-member panel with cricketers having Test match experience.

Prasad, who is from Andhra Pradesh, has played six Tests and 17 ODIs for India. Gandhi has played four Tests and three ODIs while Paranjpe has played four ODIs but no Test matches for India. Singh has played three Tests and five ODIs. Gagan Khoda has played two ODIs but no Test matches.

Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad will continue as chairman of the junior selection committee, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided at its 87th Annual General Meeting.

The board also re-elected Ajay Shirke as its secretary unopposed as it received no other nominations at the AGM that was chaired by president Anurag Thakur. While Thakur had been made the president earlier this year after former president Shashank Manohar quit to become the chairman of ICC, Shirke, who is the president of the Maharashtra Cricket Association currently, became BCCI secretary in July.

The Lodha committee had asked BCCI to limit the AGM to routine business till all its recommendations are complied with but the board went ahead with its agenda, going against the committee. It was also decided at the AGM that Thakur will continue as BCCI’s representative to the ICC.
