Chairman of selectors Krishnamachari Srikkanth may step down after he completes this three-year term this month, sources have told CNN-IBN.

Srikkanth has told the Board of Control for Cricket in India that he is happy to exit after the completion of the term. The BCCI, however, will take a final call on whether they should give him a one-year extension.

Former India all-rounder and south zone selector Roger Binny is the frontrunner to replace Srikkanth.

The chief selector has been under the scanner and under pressure to quit after India's disastrous Test tour to England where India were whitewashed 0-4. However, it should be remembered that India's ascendency to the No. 1 Test spot and the 2011 World Cup win came during Srikkanth's tenure.
