Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad

Mumbai, March 4: The BCCI's Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) on Tuesday (March 3) short-listed five candidates, including former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad, for interviews to pick two national selectors.

The committee comprising former India cricketers Madan Lal, R P Singh and Sulakshana Naik met in Mumbai and scrutinised 44 applications.

"They have called former spinner Sunil Joshi, Prasad, cricketer-turned-commentator Lakshman Sivaramakrishnan, former medium pacer Harvinder Singh and spinner Rajesh Chauhan for interviews tomorrow," a BCCI source told PTI.

The CAC will replace outgoing selection panel chief MSK Prasad and fellow panel member Gagan Khoda.

Former India pacer Ajit Agarkar, the high-profile candidate, surprisingly did not make the cut for interviews.
