I started writing this as a comment in response to Mohan’s post about the need to replace Vengsarkar with Kiran More, but ended up making a full fledged post. More had his moments, but IMHO there is no merit in going back to him.
Vengsarkar did start well, but lately has been erratic in his selections and comments. However unhappy we may be with the way the selection committee is performing now, the reality of the matter is that the selectors will not be replaced.
But here is an idea from left field – why not have a foreign chief selector? The idea may sound a bit strange, but is not completely new. Remember that Rodney Marsh was once a selector for England. If we can have an overseas coach, why not have an overseas selector as well. At least, an overseas selector will not be swayed by regional politics. Why not even bring in Greg Chappell ;)?
The idea may or may not have merit, but the fact of the matter is that we will have to wait till Vengsarkar finishes his term before any change occurs…
