Chetan Sharma, the top selector for the BCCI, has made headlines as a result of a Zee News undercover investigation. The president of the selection committee for the Indian men’s cricket team revealed a number of disturbing revelations regarding what goes on behind closed doors in Indian cricket.
Chetan Sharma revealed unconfirmed information of the incident involving Sourav Ganguly, the then-BCCI President, and former Indian captain Virat Kohli in late 2021. The top selector also revealed how some players who aren’t fit use injections to get well and participate in as many games as they can.
Chetan Sharma stated why BCCI canged captain in 2021
India’s captain in all formats in 2021 was Virat Kohli. He did, however, declare that he would resign as T20I captain following the massive tournament prior to the T20 World Cup 2021. Unexpectedly, the BCCI fired him from his position as ODI captain as well before the upcoming series against South Africa.
Rohit Sharma was named the team’s new ODI captain, according to a news release that the BCCI published after releasing the selections. Chetan Sharma provided an explanation of why the BCCI changed the skipper: “Although Ganguly never liked Virat, he did not favour Rohit.”

2. The method behind Team India’s Injections
India’s performance in international cricket has been hampered by injury problems. The current chief selector claims that a handful of the Indian team’s “superstar” players use injections to prepare themselves fully for matches. He said that the players are fully aware of drug tests.
“To be completely match-ready, several Indian superstar players receive injections. Those injections are not detected in a drug test, according to Sharma.”
3. What what transpired during the meeting between BCCI executives and Virat Kohli?
As previously indicated, the BCCI replaced the ODI captain in 2021 despite the fact that Virat Kohli had never expressed a desire to do so. In a subsequent explosive press conference before the South Africa tour, Kohli revealed that the BCCI had only given him an hour and a half’s notice before removing him as the ODI captain.
Chetan Sharma provided some specifics of what transpired at the meeting, saying:
Virat Kohli thought the BCCI President was to blame for him losing the captaincy. There were nine persons in the video conference for the selection committee, and Ganguly may have instructed him to “think about it once.
” There were nine people there, including myself, all the other selectors, and BCCI officials, so Kohli might not have heard him, in my opinion.”
4. Are Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma at odds with one another?
Since the 2019 World Cup, rumours of a dispute between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have been making the rounds in the media. Chetan Sharma revealed the reality by using an analogy from Bollywood and said:
“Although ego exists, there is no conflict between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Both Amitabh Bachan and Dharmendra are, as you might say, major movie stars.”
He wanted to teach Ganguly a lesson: Chief selector spills beans on ‘ego clash’ between Kohli and former BCCI chief

5. Why were Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma rested from T20 International matches?
Since the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2022, prominent players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have been missing from the Indian T20I roster. According to Sharma, the big stars are “resting” to make room for fresh faces like Shubman Gill.
Further, Sharma revealed that players like Deepak Hooda, Umesh Yadav, and Hardik Pandya have visited his home to talk about their futures.
