New Delhi:

Former India wicketkeeper-batsman Vijay Dahiya has been reinstated as the chief coach of the Delhi Ranji Trophy side while former Test batsman Yashpal Sharma will head the selection panel, in a list released by the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA).

Dahiya, a member of the KKR coaching staff, had coached the state side in the 2012-13 season before DDCA decided against renewing his contract as assistant coach Sanjeev Sharma was elevated to top post.

However, Delhi performed miserably under Sanjeev as they failed to clear the group league stage in the Ranji Trophy. Sanjeev is in line to become one of the domestic match referees.

Gursharan Singh will be the chairman of selectors for the U-23 side, which will be coached by Ajay Verma while another former Delhi skipper Bantoo Singh will head the U-19 selection panel while Raju Sharma has been appointed chief coach.

Anil Jain and Kamal Talwar will be the chairman of the U-16 and U-14 teams. Shikhar Dhawan's childhood coach Madan Sharma will be in charge of U-16 side while U-14 cadets will be under S M Khan's tutelege.
