New Delhi: Former India off-spinner Ashish Kapoor in all likelihood will make a comeback in the junior national selection panel after chairman Venkatesh Prasad resigned from his post on Friday.

It is all but certain that Prasad will be joining Kings XI Punjab as their bowling coach and in order to avoid potential ‘Conflict of Interest’, the former seamer stepped down less than a month after India won the ICC U-19 World Cup.

 

The other two members of the panel currently are former Uttar Pradesh all-rounder Gyanendra Pandey and former Baroda batsman Rakesh Parikh.

Kapoor, along with Punjab batsman Amit Sharma, was a part of the five-member junior selection panel before it was pruned to three as per Lodha Committee recommendations.

“In all likelihood, Ashish will make a comeback into the junior selection panel now that Venky has resigned. In case of Jatin Paranjpe and Gagan Khoda, they can’t be senior national selectors again as they are not Test players. But in case of Ashish and Amit, there was no problem with eligibility criteria,” a senior BCCI official said.

 

Kapoor had played 4 Tests and 17 ODIs for India.
