Kiran More blasts Amarnath

Mumbai, Dec 13: Former national selection committee chairman Kiran More on Thursday slammed Mohinder Amarnath for revealing confidential details involving BCCI president N Srinivasan in MS Dhoni's sacking and termed it wasn't in good taste.

Kiran More, the national selection committee chairman in 2004-2005 blasted Mohinder Amarnath for revealing confidential information.

"I think it is a very confidential area. When you become a selector, you should know what are the rules of BCCI and its constitution. I differ with him (Amarnath) and it is not good for Indian cricket. The selection room is very confidential and nothing should come out of it," said More.

"I feel very bad. It is sad for Indian cricket. It is not in good taste. As a cricketer I feel, whatever issues you may have against a player should stay inside the room," More added.

"You can write your report to the board, but coming and speaking to the media and saying he should have been dropped or not is not good and it should have stayed within the meeting room," he told reporters at Mumbai.

Kiran More also felt the previous committee should have worked on how to improve the team in all departments of the game.

"Only thing I feel is that we should have done more work after 2011. After we won the World Cup the process to build a good team should have started. That is where I have a question mark," he insisted.

"The new selection committee will have to work hard and create a good Test team for the future. I think the Test team will struggle for a year and a half. In ODIs and T20s we will do well," he added.

More also added that the new team of selectors need time to improve the standards and one should be patient.

"The new selection committee is just a month old. We need to give them time. They are under tremendous pressure. We need to look ahead and look into the process of building a good team. We might have a couple of bad years but we have a lot of talented cricketers who can represent the country," the former wicketkeeper said.
