BCCI to meet on April 6-7

March 26, 2007 18:32 IST

Rattled by the India's shocking exit from the World Cup, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has convened a Working Committee meeting in Mumbai on April 6 and 7 where the fate of under fire coach Greg Chappell would come up for discussion.

Former Indian captains have also been invited to attend the meeting which will deliberate at length on India's disastrous performance in the cricket World Cup. "We will sit with former captains like Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev and get their advice about Indian cricket based on their past experiences. We will discuss in detail India's World Cup performance," BCCI President Sharad Pawar said.

"We will see the team manager's report and also ask his personal observations during the tour. We will also give a chance to the coach and listen to what he has to say and discuss about the captaincy as well," he told NDTV.

Pawar said BCCI officials will first interact with the manager and the coach before placing their World Cup reports in the Working Committee meeting. The meeting assumes much importance in the wake of India's inglorious exit from the showpiece event and the BCCI's determination to take "drastic measures" following the debacle.

India managed to win just one match against minnows Bermuda in the preliminary rounds prompting widespread protests among cricket fans and former cricketers, who called for wholesale changes in the team.
