RP Singh included in new-look BCCI Cricket Advisory Committee

RP Singh included in new-look BCCI Cricket Advisory Committee

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have appointed RP Singh, Madan Lal and Sulakshana Naik to the revamped Cricket Advisory Committee.

The term of the appointments is set at one year with their main duties including the finalisation of the national selectors for both men's and women's teams.

The CAC will also be tasked with the appointment of the women's national coach with WV Raman's contract expected to expire in December 2020.

Past members of the CAC have often run into troubles with issues pertaining to conflict of interest. Kapil Dev, previous chairman of the CAC had stepped down from the role in October last year in response to a conflict of interest complaint filed against him.

Left-arm pacer Singh is the youngest of the three-member committee, having represented India in 14 Tests, 58 ODIs and 10 T20Is. The 34-year-old speedster made his last appearance in a first-class match back in 2017.

The 68-year-old Lal said he felt "honoured" to be a part of an important committee. He had an illustrious career donning the national jersey and was later involved in various positions in the BCCI. The 1983 World Cup-winner was India's head coach briefly in 1996 and served in the selection panel for the senior team in 2000 and 2001.

Former women's wicketkeeper-batter Naik labelled the job a "big responsibility" and hoped to fulfil her duties smoothly. She turned out for India in two Tests, 46 ODIs and 31 T20Is.
