The Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday appointed the selection committees for Rajasthan's senior men's team, the junior team and the women's team. National selector Roger Binny, assisted by five others in the court-appointed committee, will be responsible for selection of the men's team.

This ruling has made it possible for Rajasthan's cricketers to play in all of BCCI's domestic tournaments, including the Ranji Trophy. The impasse between the BCCI and Rajasthan Cricket Association over its decision to elect Lalit Modi as president had put several state cricketers' careers in serious doubt.

Two other national selectors, Connor Williams and Rita Dey, suggested by the BCCI, would be part of the junior committee and the women's committee respectively apart from Binny.
