It takes pure talent, fiery passion, hard work, dedication, and non-shattering self-belief to become an international cricketer. It takes one person like Chetan Sharma sitting in a position of power to destroy it all.
In the sting video, Chetan Sharma was seen trying to portray himself as someone who's more important than he actually is, in his attempt in doing so, he has damaged the image of many Indian cricketers. He claimed himself as someone who can make or break the careers of many established and aspiring cricketers.
Without any proof and without naming anyone, he has claimed that Indian cricketers engage in doping. After seeing him in the sting video, it really makes you think, how is BCCI selecting these selectors? Chetan Sharma has no sense of responsibility whatsoever, he clearly is someone who craves attention and engages in dirty politics.
We feel sorry for aspiring cricketers that they have to come in the good books of people like Chetan Sharma in order to be selected for the Indian team. Chetan Sharma portrayed Virat Kohli as a liar and Sourav Ganguly as vindictive. Both of them are great players and we know them better than this.
The release of the sting video in the middle of the very important Border Gavaskar Trophy can do a lot of damage to the spirit and mental health of the players.
To conclude, we would like to summarize that Chetan Sharma, the current Chief National Selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), is a man who has been known to be quite ruthless in his approach to selecting cricketers for the national team. He is known for his preference for certain players and his ability to influence selection decisions in their favor. His approach has often been criticized by many experts and cricketers alike for its lack of transparency and objectivity. He has been accused of favoring certain players, regardless of their performance, and also of going to any extent to destroy the careers of cricketers who are not in his good books. Our opinion about Chetan Sharma is that he should be sacked with immediate effect and whatever action can be taken against him must be taken. The BCCI should set an example and they must do better than this in terms of selecting national selectors.
Update: Chetan Sharma, the Chief Selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has resigned from his post following a sting operation conducted by Zee News. Sharma has denied any wrongdoing and stated that he had resigned to avoid any further controversy. His resignation has been accepted by the BCCI and the search for a new chief selector has already begun. The BCCI has also initiated an internal investigation into the allegations made against Sharma. The outcome of the investigation is yet to be seen.
