Bhatia, Awana not qualified to be DDCA selectors
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court order on new BCCI constitution has put the DDCA in a fix as two of its newly-appointed selectors -- Rajat Bhatia and Parvinder Awana -- do not qualify to hold the post. Bhatia is in the senior committee, while Awana is in the junior panel. Awana, who had played two T20 Internationals in 2012, had announced his retirement last month but Bhatia is yet to call it quits. The apex court order states that a player can only be eligible to become a national selector “if he has retired from the game at least five years previously”. As per the new diktat, DDCA won’t be able to appoint Bhatia and Awana as it will not be in conformity with the rules that are supposed to be reflected in state units too.
