Mumbai: Former India all-rounder and a key figure in India's maiden World Cup glory 28 years ago, Mohinder Amarnath draws respect from all quarters. But that's thanks to his cricketing exploits as well as the guts and gumption he has showed by staging innumerable comebacks in his heydays.

How he fares as a selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is a question that is doing the rounds in the cricketing fraternity. As a matter of fact, Amarnath has never been a part of any selection committee since quitting the game.

Former India captain and chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar -- though having enough faith in his friend and contemporary -- is eagerly waiting to see how Jimmy tackles his reign as a talent spotter and mentor as well.
