Sanjay Madansingh Jagdale (born 22 September 1950 in Indore, Madhya Pradesh) is a former Indian cricketer and a former member of the Selection Committee. He is the son of former Indian national team selector Madhavsinh Madhavrao Jagdale. Sanjay Jagdale and Madhavsinh Jagdale represent the only father-son pair Indian cricket selectors never to represent India in International Cricket. Sanjay represented Madhya Pradesh in Indian domestic cricket.[1] He was appointed as the new secretary of BCCI in August 2011 and on 31 May 2013 he resigned his post along with Ajay Shirke, following corruption in the IPL.[2]

National selector[edit]

After retiring from domestic cricket in 1983, Sanjay Jagdale returned to the game as a cricket administrator. Although a cricketer with moderate record, Sanjay Jagdale excelled in identifying talent. Narendra Hirwani - an ex Indian Test cricketer considers Sanjay Jagdale as his mentor and guru[3] and as part of the junior selection committee in the early 1990s, he spotted talents like VVS Laxman, Murali Karthik, Hrishikesh Kanitkar, Sridharan Sriram,naman ojha and Vipin Acharya.[1]

Kale's Bribery Charges[edit]

In November 2003, Abhijit Kale who represented India in a single ODI match was accused by the then BCCI's joint secretary Ratnakar Shetty of attempting to bribe 2 members of the selection committee - Kiran More and Pranab Roy.[12] Abhijit Kale was suspended immediately[13] from playing international or domestic cricket and was subject to an inquiry commission (November 2003) and disciplinary committee hearing in May 2004.[14] The commission headed by D.V. Subba Rao heard the testimony of Kale and Sanjay Jagdale who testified for the selection committee[15] and submitted its report in December 2003. After the disciplinary hearings, Kale is believed to have sent an apology letter to the then BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya.[16] On 2 June 2004, Abhijit Kale was banned from playing on domestic cricket 31 December 2004.[17]
