New Delhi: A report on the physical fitness of members of the Indian team by its Physio will be considered by the BCCI's Working Committee early next week.

Board president Jagmohan Dalmiya confirmed that physiotherapist Andrew Leipus had conducted the tests during the recent Challenger Series in Bangalore. "I am concerned about the fitness of the players and I have been stressing on it ever since I took over as BCCI president. I want transparency in all actitivities of the Board. That's why I ordered the tests," Dalmiya told reporters on Wednesday. Asked whether the report contained any 'adverse' remarks on top players including skipper Saurav Ganguly, Dalmiya said it was with BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah and he was not in a position to say anything on it. The Board Working Committee is scheduled to meet in New Delhi on February 26 and 27.
