There is nothing more blatant than the BCCI chief, a sitting MP and Minister meeting the selectors on the eve of the team selection. There is plenty of reaction and discussion in the parliament. The CPI(M) party whose support is critical to the ruling Congress party has obviously made a case for their “Prince” Saurav Ganguly. In anticipation of his selection, he has already relinquished his W.Bengal captaincy!
There is no question that the team performance stinks. But this does not mean that all and sundry tamper with the selection process. Maybe its time the selection committee is scrapped and a parliamentary committee (of sitting MPs) is setup instead to select the national team?
