Mumbai: Indian national cricket team chief selector Sandeep Patil has written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Ajay Shirke about extending his tenure for another year, despite having already completed his four-year term.

Patil has cited continuity as one of the main reasons as to why the BCCI should retain him as the chairman of the board of selectors, ahead of a rather packed home season for India.

 

However, Patil’s request has not gone down too well with India’s apex cricket governing body, according to a report in The Indian Express.

According to the BCCI norms, a selector cannot hold his post for more than four years. Media reports suggest that a number of other applicants are also vying for Patil’s job.

The Indian cricket team recently conceded their top Test ranking to arch-rivals Pakistan. However, the Men in Blue will get ample opportunities to reclaim the top spot, as they are set to play 13 home Tests this season, against the likes of New Zealand, England, Bangladesh, and Australia.

Patil had also applied for the post of Indian national team coach earlier this year. However, the Cricket Advisory Committee did not call him for the interview. The job was later given to India’s legendary former spinner Anil Kumble, who does not have much experience in international level coaching.

Patil, for his part, had guided the Kenyan national side to the semi-finals of the 2003 ICC World Cup.
