Neetu David became head of national selection panel of women cricketers:
BCCI has selected former spinner Neetu David (Neetu David) as the chief selector of the Indian women’s cricket team. Apart from Neetu, the panel consists of Dainu Mukherjee, Renu Margate, Aarti Vaidya, and V Kalpana.
The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) on Saturday announced the appointment of former spinner Neetu David (Neetu David) as chairman of the women’s national selection panel. Other members of the panel are former Indian players Mithu Mukherjee, Renu Margate, Aarti Vaidya, and V Kalpana. The tenure of the previous panel led by Hemlata Kala ended in March 2020. Sudha Shah, Anjali Pendharkar, Shashi Gupta, and Lopamudra Banerjee were other members.
The panel had selected the team for the women’s World T20 in Australia, which was their final selection. The Indian team was the runners-up. Indian spinner David has 41 wickets in 10 Tests. His name is the world record of best bowling in an innings in the test (8 wickets by 53 runs), which he achieved against England in Jamshedpur in 1995.
David, who performed brilliantly till the end of the decade 90 and early 2000, was the most wicket-taker in India’s women’s ODI, after which Jalan Goswami beat him. “In view of seniority, former left-hander spinner Neetu David will head the five-member committee,” BCCI secretary Jai Shah said in a statement. ‘
Shah said, “She is also India’s second-highest wicket-winning female player. He has 141 wickets in 97 matches. He is also the first player to get 100 wickets from the Indian side. The BCCI had not announced the new selection panel, which was being criticized considerably, but the reason behind this delay was not any cricket activity in lockdown due to Kovid-19.
The Indian women’s team will now play a three-team women’s Challenger series in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the BCCI needed to form the first new women’s selection panel. There were a lot of applications but it was learned that former Indian spinner David was the top contender.
He said goodbye to international cricket in 2008. A senior BCCI source, on the condition of secrecy from PTI, said, “Neetu is a big name in Indian women’s cricket and her stature is very big. I don’t think anyone can question Neetu’s abilities to become the head of the selection panel. ‘
For the members of the selection committee, former Maharashtra batsman Aarti Vaidya had filled the application, which was a contender from the West region. The name of Mithu Mukherjee was going on from the eastern region. He was part of the previous panel but could not finish his full term and at least two years of his tenure were left. Renu Magret was the candidate from the central region who played 5 Tests and 23 ODI for India. The fifth candidate was 59-year-old Venkatacher Kalpana.
