Mannava Sri Kanth Prasad About this sound pronunciation  (born 24 April 1975 in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh) is an Indian cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a wicketkeeper.

He is currently the selector of the Indian National Cricket Team and was heavily criticised for removing MS Dhoni from the Indian T20I team against Windies and Australia. He himself did not succeed at the highest level and was an average cricketer at domestic level. He was employed with bharat Dynamics Ltd, Hyderabad. After becoming chairman of selectors, indian team has seen consistently two wicketkeepers playing in the same eleven. Critics and cricket pundits believe that a minimum criteria should be laid down when selecting a chairman for the selection committe, one should have played a decent amount of International cricket and should have a towering recognisable personality atleast in Indian cricket circle.
