The DDCA's senior selection committee headed by Yashpal Sharma rewarded teenager Himmat Singh by including him in the Gautam Gambhir-led Delhi squad that will host Saurashtra in the opening match of the Ranji Trophy starting December 7.
Barely a week after he had tendered his resignation from the post of chairman of DDCA's senior selection committee, former Test batsman Yashpal Sharma was on Wednesday reinstated as the head of the panel only 10 ahead of Delhi's opening Ranji Trophy game against Saurashtra.
Delhi's senior selection committee headed by Yashpal Sharma predictably retained Gautam Gambhir as the captain of the Delhi one day side that will take on arch-rivals Mumbai in the pre-quarter finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy in Rajkot on November 19.
Former India wicketkeeper-batsman Vijay Dahiya has been reinstated as the chief coach of the Delhi Ranji Trophy side while former Test batsman Yashpal Sharma will head the selection panel, in a list released by the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA).
Yashpal Sharma, known for playing characters with grey shade, will again be seen as a villain in forthcoming film `Manjunath` and director Sandeep Varma says the actor`s involvement in the script helped to improve his on-screen character.
