Cricket News: 1983 – World Cup champion Kirti Azad applies for Delhi selector – World Cup winning team member Kirti Azad applies for Delhi team selector

New Delhi
Kirti Azad, who was a member of India’s 1983 World Cup winning team, applied for the post of selector for the Delhi senior team. Kirti has done so at the request of former veteran spinner Bishan Singh Bedi. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has recently raised the upper age limit for national selectors to 100 years, but it remains to be seen whether there are different conditions for Delhi and the District Cricket Association (DDCA).

Azad confirmed that he had sent an application to the state’s three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), headed by former India and Delhi player Atul Vasan. He said, ‘Yes, I have applied for the post of selector. When I was the national selector in the early 2000s, I included Gautam Gambhir and Shikhar Dhawan in the Indian team.

“I was asked by my ‘captain’ Bishan Singh Bedi and many cricket fans if I could bring back the glory days of Delhi cricket,” he said.

In the former BJP, Azad is now associated with the Congress. When Arun Jaitley was the chairman of DDCA, Azad had differences with him. However, Azad does not believe he will have any trouble working with new president Rohan Jaitley.

Rohan is the son of former BJP leader and late Union Minister Arun Jaitley. “I had no big controversy with Arun Jaitley,” said the 61-year-old, who has played seven Tests and 25 ODIs for India. Yes, we couldn’t agree on some issues and I was making a lot of noise about it. As far as Rohan is concerned, I consider him like a son.

He said, ‘Rohan is a young man and he has new ideas. I don’t believe in digging up old issues. I want to work together for the betterment of Delhi cricket.
