The Indian cricket board has dismissed former coach John Wright`s criticism of its selection process. The former New Zealand captain, who held the post for almost five years until April 2005, has called for a professional set-up in his forthcoming book `John Wright`s Indian Summers`. India`s five-member selection panel represents different zones and they have been criticised in the past for trying to push players from their respective regions under pressure to keep their post. The coach and captain participate in selection meetings but have no vote.
