Ron Dipchand has been re-appointed chair of Cricket Canada's selection committee to serve an additional two-year term. British Columbia’s Barber Javed Sandhu and Ontario’s Surendra Seeraj,  previously members of the committee also have been re-appointed.

They will be joined by new appointees Mukesh Narula (Ontario) and Navdeep Singh Sidhu of the Prairies, also for two year terms.

Cricket Canada’s Selection Policy requires all Committee Members to have played at a high level.  In accordance with these requirements, all selectors boast outstanding and highly impressive credentials.

Chairman Ron Dipchand scored two centuries and eleven fifties during his eleven-year (1980-1990) career as a Canadian national team player. Prior to his immigration to Canada he had also played cricket at the national youth and first division levels in his native Guyana.

Mukesh Narula represented Baroda in India’s Ranji Trophy Cricket Tournament, scoring 2373 runs and taking 104 wickets during his twelve-year career. He also played for the West Zone in the BCCI organized Duleep and Deodhar Trophy Tournaments and later represented the Drummond Cricket Club during a five year (1992-1997) stint as a professional in Ireland.

Baber Javed Sandhu’s Pakistan national cricket career began in 1991 at age 17 when he presented the country’s Under 19 team.  Baber was again selected the following year and was appointed as Vice captain. His first-class career began in 1990 when he was selected to play for Lahore Division and Pakistan Railways. That gave him the opportunity to play amongst some of the greats of Pakistan cricket such as Saqlain Mushtaq, Aaqib Javed, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis.

Navdeep Sigh Sidhu represented Punjab in India’s  Ranji and Vijay Hazare Trophy Tournaments during a three year period from 2010 – 2014, prior to which he had played college cricket as a member of the Guru Nanak Dev University team. Navdeep’s player resume also boasts appearances for the Stirling County Cricket Club Division Two team in  Scotland and in 2016 for the Avondale Heights Cricket Club in Melbourne, Australia

Surendra Seraj’s 1991 record of 7 dismissals as wicket-keeper for Canada's U19 team is yet to be surpassed at that level. As an outstanding wicket-keeper Surendra was also a regular member of Canada’s Senior Men’s Team from 1994 – 1996.

The Selection Committee’s principal role is to select teams to represent Canada that will maximize Canada’s chances of winning international matches and series and guarantee the long-term success of Canadian cricket.  The Selection Committee also recommends players for consideration for High Performance and Academy development programmes.
