Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to put selection criteria for the appointment of the selectors of the Indian cricket team.

According to sources, the BCCI has placed strict qualification criteria for appointment of selectors, which requires the applicants to have international cricket experience and the Board also put limitation of age of 60 years for the same.

The Indian Cricket Board has set September 14th, 2016 as the deadline for applying for the posts. Candidates who wish to apply for the positions of senior, junior and women national selectors will need to fulfill the criteria.

The new norms suggests that candidate should have played more than 50 first-class matches in India to be considered for a position in the junior national selection committee.

Aiming to steer clear of the conflict of interest issue that has dogged the Board in recent past, the BCCI criteria stated, “He or she should not be part of any IPL team/management or part of any other league in the world.”
