Interestingly, DDCA's Ombudsman Justice (Retd.) Badar Durrez Ahmed had requested against tinkering with any committee at the moment, but the association still went ahead and changed the three-man selection panel.

The 56-year-old Bantoo's first-class career spanned a decade, from the mid-1980s to the mid-90s.

Bantoo, who has served as a state selector in the past and has been a junior selector, scored 3694 runs in 69 first-class matches at an average of 45.04 and a highest score of 214. He had 11 centuries and 18 fifties. As per rule, a selector cannot have a tenure beyond five years.

In 33 List A games, he has scored 607 runs at an average of 33.05.

He will have former players Chetanya Nanda and Anil Bhardwaj as his co-selectors.

Former India player Wassan was appointed as the chief selector of the senior selection committee in August 2018.

The 51-year-old Wassan was head of the selection committee for the 2017-18 season when Delhi finished runners-up in the Ranji Trophy.

The CAC also deliberated on the junior selection committee and approved the names of Ashu Dani, Karan Dubey and Pradeep Chawla.
