Shyama Shaw replaces Mithu Mukherjee in women’s selection panel, Naidu to chair boys’ U-19 committee

Mumbai, Jun 19 (PTI) Former Bengal and Railways cricketer Shyama Shaw was on Monday added to the senior women’s national selection panel as she replaced compatriot Mithu Mukherjee.

“The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), comprising Ms Sulakshana Naik, Mr Ashok Malhotra, and Mr Jatin Paranjape, screened applications for the positions of one selector in the women’s selection committee and junior cricket committee each, respectively,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in a release.

A left-handed batter and left-arm seam bowler, 51-year-old Shaw represented India in three Tests in 1995 and hit two fifties and took five wickets while also featuring in five one-day internationals from 1995-97.

In the domestic circuit, Shaw played for Bengal from 1985-1997 and represented Railways from 1998 to 2002. Shaw also served as a selector for Bengal for two terms.

Mukherjee’s tenure ended after being appointed in the role by the BCCI in September 2020. She had also worked for a two-year term during N Srinivasan’s tenure as president of BCCI.
