Just when we thought media revelations have lost their sting, BCCI’s selection committee chairman Chetan Sharma gets caught revealing sensitive information in such an operation. Sharma resigned from his post early on Friday and sent his letter to BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, who accepted it. The resignation comes amid a controversial sting operation by Zee News, which showed Sharma revealing classified selection matters.

Sharma, who was recently reinstated by the BCCI after being removed following India's showing in the T20 World Cup in Australia, was seen during the sting operation casting aspersions on players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah.
