New Delhi. Former Indian fast bowler Ajit Agarkar has joined the race to become the national selector on Friday. Agarkar confirmed that he has applied for the position of national selector. Agarkar, former chairman of Mumbai's senior selection committee, is in the race to become the chairman of the national selection committee as the new constitution does not provide for a regional system.
In fact, the BCCI had set the last date for sending applications on January 24 and Agarkar was the biggest in it. The name has come to the fore, who has taken 349 wickets in 26 Tests, 191 ODIs and three T20 Internationals in total. He has 288 wickets in his name in ODIs. A BCCI official said, it is interesting for Ajit to join the race. They must have applied very thoughtfully. Apart from Agarkar, former cricketers who have applied for the post of selector include Chetan Sharma from Haryana, Nayan Mongia from Baroda, Sivaramakrishnan from Tamil Nadu, Rajesh Chauhan from Madhya Pradesh and Amay Khorasia from Gyanendra Pandey from Uttar Pradesh (not qualified because of junior selector Has completed four years in form.) And Pritam Gandhe of Vidarbha.
