Singh retorted that even when he was minister,67, said PSI Raju S from the Nirmal Nagar police station.My charge as EO is additional charge. The IPL as a yardstick is always debated. What we look for in the IPL is how players adapt from performing there and then when they play domestic cricket Hardik Pandya has adapted wonderfully Now Parthiv Jasprit Bumrah nobody knew about him And suddenly he’s in India colours and going about his work like he belongs to the big league Another crucial factor are the India A tours especially now with Rahul Dravid at the helm The board has done a fantastic job by roping him in That is the level where the seed is planted in a player’s mind which they will carry for the rest of their career I saw Rahul in action live in Australia and the way he works and communicates with each player is phenomenal So communication is at an all-time high with Indian cricket be it with Virat and the team management or Rahul and the India A players or the selection committee and the team management What lines of communication between you guys and the team management The beautiful thing is that the selectors are finally part of the group selecting the playing XI Otherwise we select one team and then have no say So the board has done a good job That way it really helping the boys More importantly Dhoni Virat and Anil understand each other and we gel much better now that we are all sitting together while picking the squad as well as the playing XI What about the injured players We take account of every player We are looking at opportunities to be in constant touch with the injured players For now we are monitoring all the guys recuperating at the NCA Or we get inputs about them from Anil Rahul or the physios Being injured is when you feel your loneliest That’s when you need an arm around you Frankly speaking we haven’t quite got the time to interact with the injured players We are just two months into our tenure after all The communication between Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid that direct line between India A and senior team… Undoubtedly But they are also so professional They don’t interfere at all with the selection process They might give suggestions on and off But it’s the selectors who keep moving from match to match It’s we who prepare a succession chart Whenever there is a requirement we fill in that slot with players who we have identified There is a clear line that neither the coaches or Virat and MS ever cross We are allowed to do our job It’s been rather easy for you so far with India playing at home Next year there’s a Champions Trophy and a lot of cricket overseas We are looking ahead already We are making our backup plans Since we are only playing in India for now we are relatively relaxed but we are aware of the challenges that lie abroad and we have already identified players who will serve us well in foreign climes We are playing only three ODIs before the Champions Trophy But we are not concerned at all Because the boys will have 14-15 IPL games each before the tournament I feel IPL is as good as the Champions Trophy in terms of quality looking at the kind of players who play Most of the guys like Gambhir and Parthiv and even Jayant Yadav have come up the ranks Then there’s the punt on Hardik Pandya The committee believes that players should come through a certain system There has to be a systematic process like what I’ve said about Rishabh Pant But there will be a one-odd talent like Hardik who will stand out In the case of Hardik I should say that he is no way related to any of the selectors None of us were close to him But he’s got that X-factor in him and we all felt that And there is also a slot that is available and we felt he’s the best He selects himself for that slot ‘Every cricketer deserves to know where he stands… so we decided to communicate’ Has there been a situation so far where you have had to go and tell a player you’re done with him No In fact we have made it clear to everyone till a player decides to hang up his boots there is always scope for him We cannot write off anybody Imagine how Ashish Nehra came from nowhere He was bowling well of course but nobody thought at the time It’s the drive of the player that keeps him there But at the same time we can never feel sorry for anybody and we are not supposed to also We are selecting the Indian team expected to pick the best team in the country None of our decisions are personal At the end of the day it’s about what’s best for the team There’s always been this ‘lightweight’ tag about this committee You personally get compared to other chairmans How do you react to it To begin with we were disturbed by that tag We are humans at the end of the day But let me tell you lightweight is more comfortable but still powerful (laughs) By the end of our tenures we will definitely leave a mark for others to emulate I assure you I do agree that we might not have played as much as some other committees but at the end of the day what matters is honesty integrity What if somebody who’s played more than 100 Tests is not able to deliver What if his integrity is questioned It’s not about how much you’ve played it’s about what you give back to the game How honest and sincere are you Can you develop a good bench-strength and set good protocols in place That is what is more important I personally don’t follow media reports much But at the beginning some of my co-selectors brought it to my attention and they were very disturbed I told them very clearly players will respect you for the work you do not the baggage you carry or how much of a heavyweight you are or were as a cricketer For example one lament was how can they walk up to say a MS Dhoni and say we want to move on What is wrong in telling him if it’s meant to be said We are not here to survive We are here to deliver the best possible results so we will take every decision based on that Like a player we will also be evaluated by our efforts and results Let me tell you if somebody is trying to call us lightweight after three years they will have to change their opinion How are the newer members like Jatin Paranjape and Sarandeep Singh dealing with it There is less focus on us and we are thriving on it The new selectors who have come on board have hardly spent any time at home since being selected They’ve been out since the first week of their tenures They are so exuberant and enthusiastic I have to ask them to relax at times It is a huge honour for them We have all played a lot of first-class cricket close to 100 games each But we were all unfortunate that we didn’t have big international careers As players we missed big international cricket but as selectors we want to work hard and select those players who will go on to have a fantastic international career What we missed we want the boys to have it For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More

midfielder Wu volleyed home from eight metres out to give China what appeared to be the winner until Al Saleh struck his late goal “It’s a shame we only gained a point from this game” said China coach Marcello Lippi “We deserved the three points “Now there is only one possibility left: we have to beat Uzbekistan by two goals in our next match and then hope they lose and that we win against Qatar
