Sharath Appointed Chair of Junior Selection Committee
Former Tamil Nadu cricketer S Sharath has been named chairman of India’s junior selection committee. Sharath was the first cricketer from the state to play 100 first-class matches, scoring 8700 runs, including 27 hundred and 42 half-centuries throughout a 15-year career.

Ranadeb Bose was a member of the Indian team for the 2007 England tour, where he took 317 wickets in 91 games. Sridharan Sharath (born October 31, 1972 in Madras, Tamil Nadu) is a former Indian cricketer who represented Tamil Nadu in first-class cricket.
He is a left-handed batsman who has scored 8390 runs at 51.47 with 27 hundreds in 134 first-class matches, making him one of the most prolific batsmen in Indian domestic cricket history. He never played Test or ODI cricket for his country, but he did play for India A on several occasions. He is the only player from Tamil Nadu to have appeared in 100 Ranji Trophy games.
Most consistent players

He was unlucky that his heyday coincided with a period when India’s middle order was brimming with potential, with names like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, and VVS Laxman.
Sharath lacked impeccable technique,
Sharath lacked impeccable technique, was abnormally built (with clumps protruding from his waist), and made batting look difficult. In many respects, he was Arjuna Ranatunga of Indian domestic cricket – the crisis manager, the cool head under pressure, the industrious artisan in a squad full of artists.
