A former player of the Indian cricket team exposes the failure of the BCCI

The ICC Men's ODI World Cup is approaching, and captain of team India Rohit Sharma has an opportunity to prove his critics wrong and end India's decade-long wait for an ICC Trophy. The team last lifted a trophy at an elite ICC tournament back in 2013 under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
While this has been a hot topic among cricket fans, former India cricketer and selector Dilip Vengsarkar mentioned an important point along the same lines.
Vengsarkar, like many other former India cricketers, is not happy with the current situation of Team India, and in an interaction, he claimed that many who have held the position in the past few years have lacked vision, stating they failed to groom an ideal candidate as Rohit's successor.
Vengsarkar said that "the unfortunate part is that the selectors I have seen over the last six-seven years neither have the vision, deep knowledge about the game, or cricketing sense. They made Shikhar Dhawan India captain (when tours overlapped and main players were unavailable); it is where you can groom the future captain."
While slamming the management over the same, he said, "You haven’t groomed anybody. You just take it as it comes. You talk about the richest cricket board in the world; where is the bench strength? Just having the IPL and earning crores of rupees in media rights should not be the only achievement."
