Bha­tia, Awana not qual­i­fied to be DDCA se­lec­tors

Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - HTSPORTSMAX -

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.
