NEW DELHI, Sept 27 (CMC) Former Indian batsman Mohinder Amarnath has been sacked as the North Zone selector by the BCCI during the board's 83rd Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mumbai.

The decision came amidst the report of rift between the former batsman and the Indian cricket board (BCCI).

Reports of Amarnath threatening to quit had surfaced after the selection committee had met in August this year to pick the Test team for the two-match series against New Zealand. Amarnath had objected to MS Dhoni continuing as the Test captain after the twin debacles in England and Australia, but then chairman K Srikkanth refused to oblige and the former had threatened to leave.

BCCI sources suggest that the sacking of out-of-favour Amarnath would make way for Vikram Rathour.

Meanwhile, 1983 World cup winner Roger Binny is all set to replace Kris Srikkanth as chief selector. Binny has been leading the nominations which includes names like that of Saba Karim and Abey Kuruvilla.

Former chief selector Kris Srikkanth had served 4-year term during which India won the 2011 ODI World Cup as well as showed one of their worst performances in England and Australia.
