Jobs Spam Emails: BCCI Receives ‘CVs’ Of Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni And Virender Sehwag For The Post Of Selector, Is It True?
BCCI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India has received over 600 email applications for the five-member selection panel. Some of these have been sent from ‘fake ID’.
When the officials of the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) opened the ‘mail box’ to check the ‘bio data’ of the future National Selection Committee candidates, they found Sachin Tendulkar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Singh Dhoni) and Virender Sehwag (Virender Sehwag) were surprised to see the applications.
This was not enough that Inzamam-ul-Haq, who was the captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team, had also presented his candidature for this post. It was just that all these ‘bio data’ were done by some fraudsters with ‘spam email ids’ who intended to have some fun with BCCI.
BCCI has received over 600 email applications for the five-member selection panel. Some of these are made of ‘Fake IDs’ which are in the names of Tendulkar, Dhoni, Sehwag and Inzamam. Talking seriously, the Cricket Advisory Committee will shortlist 10 names for these posts.
BCCI receives 600 applications for 5 posts
A BCCI source told PTI, “Around 600 applications have been received by us and some were received from ‘fake IDs’ which were in the names of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Sehwag and Tendulkar. They are wasting the time of BCCI by doing this. “The CAC will shortlist 10 candidates and then select the final five. The process will end soon.
After the defeat in the T20 World Cup, the BCCI had sacked the selection committee.
The BCCI had last month sacked the Chetan Sharma-led selection panel after the team’s semi-final exit from the T20 World Cup. But until the candidates are selected to replace him, this panel will continue to function. The panel assessed the performance of the players in the first round of Ranji Trophy as well and is monitoring the matches in the second round as well.
Central contract work postponed due to non-election of new selection committee
Debashish Mohanty watches the match between Bengal and Himachal Pradesh in Kolkata. The BCCI Apex Council on Wednesday could not clear the central contracts of the players as the selection committee is yet to be constituted and its inputs are needed before finalizing the list.
The CAC consists of Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe and Sulakshna Naik. He was appointed earlier this month. The CAC is expected to meet soon to complete this task. Apart from finalizing the central contract, the selection panel’s initial task will also be to pick the teams for the home series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand starting January 3.
