BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah today refused to confirm or deny reports about Chief Selector Dilip Vengsarkar offering to resign from the post, saying he was not aware about any such development.
"I am not aware of this. I don't keep in touch with him all the time," Shah told PTI when asked if Vengsarkar had offered to resign.
Vengsarkar, who had a meeting with BCCI Chief Sharad Pawar last evening before returning to Mumbai, is believed to be upset over the alleged inadequate compensation for the ban on writing newspaper columns and the directions to the selection for the third Test over telephone.
There were also reports that selectors were upset that the BCCI shifted the date of team selection from Tuesday to Wednesday with consulting with them.
