The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has sacked the entire senior selection committee, including chairman Chetan Sharma following the T20 World Cup 2022 debacle.
Team India, one of the favourites to clinch the title, crashed out of the tournament after facing a 10-wicket against England, now champions, in the semifinal.
