Former India pacer Abey Kuruvilla, who was recently appointed chairman of selectors for Mumbai s senior team, might become the West Zone representative in BCCI selection panel.

Kuruvilla will be replacing Surendra Bhave, who was part of Krishnamachari Srikkanth s selection committee. Bhave ended his four-year term recently.

Former India pacer Abey Kuruvilla has emerged the front-runner to represent West Zone in the Board of Control for Cricket in India s (BCCI) senior selection panel. The spot was vacated by Surendra Bhave, who was part of the last selection committee headed by Krishnamachari Srikkanth which ended its four-year term recently.

Kuruvilla still plays cricket and is often spotted across Mumbai maidans with budding cricketers.

“We (MCA) will try our best to pitch for Abey Kuruvilla as the West Zone representative in the BCCI selection panel. He has done an excellent job over the years. His record has been extraordinary as well. As far as the MCA is concerned, Abey is the most suitable West Zone representative. We will ensure he gets good support,” MCA s joint honorary secretary, Dr PV Shetty, was quoted as saying by MiD-DAY.
