India bowed out of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 after losing in the semi-finals against England. This was followed by their humiliating performance and Super 12 exit in the 2021 edition. Following these debacles, the national selection committee led by Chetan Sharma was sacked by BCCI. 

Since then there have been talks about the new selection committee that will be taking up the responsibility. As per the latest reports, former Indian spinner turned commentator Lakshman Sivaramakrishnan might miss out on becoming a member of the committee. The reason sighted being Sivaramakrishnan is not considered is that two members from the same state might not be allowed. 

The names to be included in the  committee have not yet been disclosed. But the new members will have a task cut out for them as they need to ensure the selection of a team that goes ahead and ends India's 10-year-long wait for ICC trophies in the 2023 ODI World Cup. 

Besides India's below-par performance in the multi-nation tournaments, various other reasons were given for the sacking of the previous committee. Things such as interference into the dressing room of the squad to lack of clarity in the selction process everything came to the forefront. 

Whom the BCCI select for the esteemed job next will be a thing of keen interest for the Indian cricket fans. Also, how things turn out and whether the new committee comes with some revoltionary decisions and new options or whether they stick to the traditional selection procedure.
