Kirti Azad, a former captain of Cricket Team India, has applied for the state selector’s job. Kirti was captain of the team when the team won the 1983 world cup. 

His mentor Bishan Singh Bedi requested him to apply for the job. The player has also confirmed that he has sent the application for the job to Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) headed by former India and Delhi player Atul Wassan.

Azad is 61 years old and BCCI has put the upper age limit for selectors to 60. If Delhi Cricket Association has different criteria, then only the player will qualify for the age bar.

When the player was asked about it, he admitted that he had applied for the selector position. He also said that he had introduced some of the great players like Gautam Gambhir, Shikhar Dhawan into the Delhi team back in the early 2000s at the time when he was the national selector.

Azad is currently associated with the political party Congress. He was previously affiliated to Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) but he had some differences with former Finance Minister, late Arun Jaitley when he was the president of Delhi & Districts Cricket Association (DDCA).

When Azad was asked about it, he said that he had never any differences with Mr. Jaitley. Though they may have not agreed on certain things and Azad used to be vocal about them.

Azad has played 7 Tests and 25 ODIs, and 142 first-class games in his cricket career.
