It is worth noting that the chief of the selection committee is given a salary of Rs 1 crore annually by the BCCI, while the remaining four members of the committee are given Rs 90 lakh annually.

Earlier, Sehwag had disclosed that the BCCI had shown interest in making him the head coach, but later the role was given to Anil Kumble. On the other hand, a source having information about this matter said that Sehwag can refuse the post of chief selector due to low salary.

Speaking to news agency ‘PTI’, a BCCI official said, “At the time of CoA, Viru was asked to apply for the post of head coach and then it went to Anil Kumble. It is unlikely that he would apply himself and the salary package is also not something that would be financially viable for someone of his stature.”

The source further said, “It is not that the BCCI cannot pay at least Rs 4-5 crore to the chairman of the selection committee. It can really solve a lot of these conflict of interest issues that prevent leading players from even thinking about getting into the selection committee.”
