He is the son of former Indian national team selector Madhavsinh Jagdale. Sanjay Jagdale and Madhavsinh Jagdale represent the only father-son pair Indian cricket selectors never to represent India in International Cricket. Sanjay represented Madhya Pradesh in Indian domestic cricket.[1] He was appointed as the new secretary of BCCI in August 2011 and on 31 May 2013 he resigned his post along with Ajay Shirke following corruption in the Indian Premier League.[2]

National selectorEdit

After retiring from domestic cricket in 1983, Sanjay Jagdale returned to the game as a cricket administrator. Although a cricketer with moderate record, Sanjay Jagdale excelled in identifying talent. Narendra Hirwani - an ex Indian Test cricketer considers Sanjay Jagdale as his mentor and guru[3] and as part of the junior selection committee in the early 1990s, he spotted talents like VVS Laxman, Murali Karthik, Hrishikesh Kanitkar, Sridharan Sriram,naman ojha and Vipin Acharya.[1]

Kale's Bribery ChargesEdit

In November 2003, Abhijit Kale who represented India in a single ODI match was accused by the then BCCI's joint secretary Ratnakar Shetty of attempting to bribe 2 members of the selection committee - Kiran More and Pranab Roy.[12] Abhijit Kale was suspended immediately[13] from playing international or domestic cricket and was subject to an inquiry commission (November 2003) and disciplinary committee hearing in May 2004.[14] The commission headed by D.V. Subba Rao heard the testimony of Kale and Sanjay Jagdale who testified for the selection committee[15] and submitted its report in December 2003. After the disciplinary hearings, Kale is believed to have sent an apology letter to the then BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya.[16] On 2 June 2004, Abhijit Kale was banned from playing on domestic cricket 31 December 2004.[17]
