Cricket selection: Who is fooling whom?

The Minister of Sports was seen responding to a question on the pending appointments of the Cricket

Selection Committee in the strangest way, knowingly or unknowingly. The Minister went to great lengths to explain that the appointment of the Cricket Selection Committee shall be done in concurrence with the National Selection Committee, the National Sports Council and the Cricket Technical Committee. Isn’t the appointment of selection committees across 73 disciplines vested with the National Selection Committee? And aren’t selection committees expected to be ‘independent’ and free of outside ‘influence’?
