Chetan Sharma, the Chief Selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, resigned from his post on Friday after being caught in a sting operation.
It has been reported that Chetan Sharma sent his resignation to BCCI Secretary Jai Shah, which was accepted.
In the sting operation, Chetan Sharma made several shocking revelations about Team India and its star players.
This tarnished the image of the players and Chetan Sharma had to face severe criticism. Now he has resigned from his post.
Last month, Chetan Sharma was re-appointed as Chief Selector. However, the recent controversial sting operation has put him in a difficult situation.
It was believed that BCCI would take significant action against Chetan Sharma after the sting operation went viral.
The board was considering removing him from his position and was in a mood to take immediate action.
However, Chetan Sharma resigned before BCCI could take any steps against him.
During the sting operation, Chetan Sharma made many big revelations. He mentioned that players of the Indian team take injections and become 100% fit.
He said that the drug used in these injections is not a painkiller and is undetectable in dope tests.
Additionally, he made a significant disclosure about the captaincy of Virat Kohli.
