Former wicketkeeper MSK Prasad has been chosen to succeed Sandeep Patil as the chairman of India's selection panel. The decision was taken at the BCCI's 87th annual general meeting in Mumbai, after the board had invited applicants for the selection job for the first time.

Prasad had been part of the previous selection panel headed by Patil since November last year. Former offspinner Sarandeep Singh, and former batsmen Gagan Khoda, Devang Gandhi and Jatin Paranjpe were the other four selectors named in the five-member panel.

A top BCCI official said despite the three new selectors in the panel - Sarandeep, Gandhi and Paranjpe - hailing from different zones, the appointments had been made on the basis of interviews conducted over the last two days.

Prasad made his international debut in 1998, in an ODI against Bangladesh. He played the first of his six Tests in 1999 against New Zealand at Mohali. In 2000, however, he was dropped from India's Test squad and did not play international cricket again.

He played 96 first-class matches, scored 4021 runs at an average of 27.73 and effected 266 dismissals. He also hit 1719 runs in 88 List A games. Prasad was appointed Andhra's captain for the 2007-08 Ranji Trophy season, but announced his retirement in 2008. He also served as Andhra Cricket Association's director of cricket for six years.

"It's undoubtedly a great honour. I have a clear-cut vision about how we are heading to the 2019 World Cup," Prasad said after his appointment. "I always have kept notes about what I want to do for the 2017 Champions Trophy, for the 2019 World Cup. There is a lot of planning. The best thing is we have watched as many domestic matches as possible. We have done tours to Zimbabwe, Australia only at the end of the season. Because we have watched so much domestic cricket last year we have a succession chart and jotted down names for three different formats. Sandy bhai's team has done a fantastic job. It makes more sense for us to continue with it and move ahead."
