Can’t beg for making me selector: Bedi
The J&K Chief Coach and former International Cricketer Bishen Singh Bedi on Thursday said that he has no role in selection process and can’t beg in front of J&K Cricket Association to give him selection role.
“This is ugly thing that has happened to JK cricket till now. An unfortunate thing that should have been avoided both by officials and players. There are other ways to express your resentment and boycott is not a proper way,” he told Greater Kashmir from Jammu on phone.
About his role in selection process as being chief coach of JK team he said, “I want to make it clear that I have got no role in selection process unlike other States/teams in which chief coach has got role. I am being given team which I had to train for few days before and during the match”.
“I can’t beg before JKCA to make me selector and give me proper role in the selection process. They have got selection panel which looks after that thing,” he said.
However players blame Bedi for the rift as they say he doesn’t like some of the players in the team hence used his influence to make selection.
“It is known truth that he doesn’t like my face. Hence he used his influence on selectors to axe me from the 15-member team that is going to take on Andra Pradesh on Saturday,” said Abid Nabi.
“Though he has got no official role in selection but he influences process and the selectors in big way,” he added.
