Ajit Agarkar, Nilesh Kulkarni, Sunil More and Ravi Thakkar have tendered their resignations a day after the conclusion of 2018-19 Indian domestic season.

In a surprising move, all four Mumbai cricket selectors – Ajit Agarkar, Nilesh Kulkarni, Sunil More and Ravi Thakkar – have tendered their resignations a day after the conclusion of 2018-19 Indian domestic season.

According to reports, their resignation comes on the same day ahead of the Mumbai Cricket Association s adhoc committee meeting that was set to remove the selectors from their positions.

According to a report in The Hindu, the selectors emailed their resignation letters to the ad-hoc committee and MCA chief executive C.S. Naik. Earlier, group of members in an Special General Meeting (SGM) last month had passed a resolution to sack the selection panel.

In the last two years, Mumbai have managed to win just one domestic title – The 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy.

The selectors were under pressure after a Special General Meeting of the MCA member units had passed a resolution to sack them.

The matter had then come up to the Cricket Improvement Committee which backed the selectors.

It is understood that the current ad hoc committee took a legal opinion on the issue before it met.
