The BCCI, on September 21) named a little known former India wicketkeeper-batsman, MSK Prasad, as the chairman of the new selection committee during its 87th Annual General Meeting.
Mocking the BCCI's selection process, the former Indian off-spinner termed the new selectors as 'a bunch of jokers'.
Bedi took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, "Why blame new bunch o jokers..oops..sorry selectors...we must try & find out who put tortoise on top o the pole...mustn't we?!!"

Bedi, who has been a coach of the Indian national cricket team, is known for speaking his heart out and has constantly supported the recommendations of Lodha commission. His tussle with the BCCI administration is well known.
In overall analysis, the new selection committee has a combined international experience of 13 Tests and 31 ODIs. Several cricket fans and experts mocked the board's selection of inexperienced people.
