At a time when there is a question mark over the fitness of two of India's best fast bowlers, Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma ahead of the 4-match Test series vs Australia, NDTV has learnt that BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale has written a letter to theÂ BCCI Selection Committee.
Jagdale has proposed a pool of bowlers who will be monitored at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
"It is proposed to create a pool of bowlers and keep them under monitoring at the NCA (National Cricket Academy) throughout the year," said the letter signed by BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale.
He has also requested the members to suggest 10-15 names of current talents who are representing the Indian team and those who can, in future.
"You are requested to kindly suggest around 10/15 names of current/promising/potential talents who are representing the Indian team and those who can, in future.
"In this regard please get in touch with the Chairman Selection committee Mr.Srikanth at the earliest and forward your suggestions to him," the letter added.
This is being seen as a long term method to try and cut down on paying a heavy price on overseas tours due to unfit bowlers.
