India's outgoing chief selector MSK Prasad has come out in strong support of Indian skipper Virat Kohli in the wake of his torrid run with the bat in New Zealand. Not only did India get blanked in both ODIs and Tests, Kohli personally failed to score a single fifty in the two formats. In fact, he managed only one half-century on the entire tour.
The somewhat controversial tenure of the BCCI senior selection committee led by MSK Prasad has come to an end, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly confirmed on Sunday. An amendment in the BCCI constitution does allow for a maximum term of five years for a selection committee. However, BCCI has decided not to extend the tenure of the present team.
