The selection committee meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Friday, was delayed due to confusion over selection procedures and protocols in the wake of the Supreme Court's removal of the board's president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke, according to reports. The meeting, to decide India's One-Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) squads for the upcoming series of matches against England, was scheduled to commence at 1230 IST. The meeting has now been shifted to 1500 IST.

As a corollary of the Supreme Court verdict on January 2, the BCCI's selection committee is without its secretary who would convene the meeting. However, the meeting will now be conducted under the aegis of the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.
