The CAC will shortlist candidates for the selection position on Tuesday

MUMBAI: The BCCI The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) will finally be in charge of choosing two national selectors at its first meeting on Tuesday.

The three-member CAC, which is supposed to pick the selectors as per the BCCI constitution, has not had much to do since its appointment on January 31.

The committee formed by former Indian cricketers Madan Lal , RP Singh & Sulakshana Naik will shortlist candidates for personal interviews.

Lal, who had previously told PTI that 44 applications had been received for two positions, confirmed Monday that he will travel to Mumbai for the meeting.

Yes, I will go to the meeting but I still don't know the details, he told PTI.

However, a BCCI source confirmed that the meeting is scheduled to shortlist the candidates.

The CAC is seeking replacements from the head of the outgoing selection panel MSK Prasad & fellow panel member Gagan Khoda .

Ganguly, who did not travel to Dubai to Asian Cricket Council meetings due to the rising threat of novel coronavirus, is likely to be present at the BCCI headquarters on Tuesday.

In January, the BCCI boss had said the new selection panel will pick the India squad for the home ODIs against South Africa, beginning in Dharamsala on March 12.

There is still time for the South Africa series. The entire process for picking the new selectors will be done this week, said a BCCI official.
