Mumbai: BCCI’s chief selector, MSK Prasad, who is on his way out of the selection committee has received a lot of flak over his and his panel of selectors’ decisions regarding the selection of players as well as their lack of experience at the international level.

Despite receiving criticism from various sectors, Prasad has maintained that he has good relations with former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and present captain Virat Kohli.

 

Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, he says, "During this tenure, I used to take advice from legendary cricketers which helped. My relationship with MSD and Virat Kohli is intact. People might write anything but when I speak to them, I know how much they respect me."

He likened his experience with the BCCI selection committee to his tenure as director of cricket at the Andhra Cricket Association. He said, " I am a management student and at Andhra Cricket Association (where he was the director of cricket), I dealt with much bigger issues than here."

He added, "We built Andhra association from scratch where people were not motivated to work. When Anurag Thakur came to Andhra in 2015, he called it 'Adarsh Cricket Association'. BCCI is an evolved place, you have mature people. I don't think I had a tough time here because I had gone through a lot of stress working in Andhra."

Prasad talked about how his committee would go about selecting a player for the team. He said, "Myself, the India A management and the Indian management sit down and discuss the progress of a player. We look at the requirements of the senior team and groom a player based on that."
