Further the notice says, "The motion is moved because: the selectors never watched MCA Club matches. Selection for Madhav Mantri U-23 tournament, which was played in May 2018, was done by coaches appointed for the four teams, instead of selectors. Players who performed exceedingly well in 2017/18 season were neglected and not selected for 2018/19 probables list.
