Chennai: Dec 13, 2012
 
Former Selection Committee chairman Kris Srikkanth, who has been accused of shielding Indian skipper MS Dhoni despite poor performances, on Thursday hit back saying that it is not right to rake up issues discussed in the panel meetings.
 
Former selector Mohinder Amarnath has opened a Pandora’s Box by stating that three selectors out of the five-member panel wanted Dhoni to be sacked but they were overruled by BCCI President N Srinivasan.
 
Srikkanth, who headed the panel which persisted with Dhoni as captain despite the whitewash in England, on Thursday said that it was not appropriate to reveal the details of committee meetings.
 
“I have always maintained that whatever happens in the selection committee meetings should remain within the four walls. It is not right for me or anyone to come out and say what exactly happened,” Srikkanth told reporters.
 
“It’s just like a company’s Board meetings where lot of discussions happen about what to do and what not to do for the company’s growth. But nobody comes out in public and tells what (has) happened,” he said.
 
Refusing to give pointed reactions to the allegations made by Amarnath, Srikkanth said, “We discuss a lot of issues in the selection committee meetings, captaincy of Dhoni or X,Y,Z always come up in the meetings.
 
“We always have detailed discussion on captaincy issues, ex-players, team combination. But at the end of the day it is always consensus,” he added.
 
Srikkanth said the focus should be diverted from the controversies to ensure that the team, which is currently playing to save the series against England, is not distracted.
 
“We should just move on. Yes, Indian cricket is going through tough times and let’s hope we do well in the Nagpur Test match and revive,” he said.
