We will inform you after the IPL final on the May 29,” Thakur said. Thakur said the composition of the team for Zimbabwe would be the selectors prerogative. “Mr (Ajay) Shirke is the convener of the selection committee. Lets leave it to the selectors. Before any tour if a player wants to take rest, they convey to the BCCI and the selection committee takes a call. If the selectors want to experiment with some new players they take the senior players into confidence. Theres a set process in place,” Thakur said. For the tour of West Indies after Zimbabwe, Thakur said a chef could be sent with the team to ensure that food is of players liking. “During the West Indies tour we are thinking of sending a chef with the team. Food should not be a constraint. If you are not comfortable with the food how can you perform well?” he said. PTI SSR PM PMlast_img read more
