Today, BCCI also announced that former wicket-keeper Saba Karim would be appointed as the GM (Cricket Operations), a post that was left vacant following the demise of M V Sridhar. "As far as the questions is concerned of the GM (Cricket Operations), several applications had come, in this process CoA has only taken the decision and the final selection of Saba Karim is being done by CoA," maintained the acting secretary. Quizzed who were the applicants, Choudhary quipped, "After this appointment, it won't be fair to discuss that."
