Kolkata :The disciplinary committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday began its two-day hearing on the bribery allegations against Maharashtra cricketer Abhijit Kale.

The BCCI president, Jagmohan Dalmiya, who heads the committee, said just before the start of the meeting that the two national selectors, Pranab Roy and Kiran More, were, "supposed to present their witnesses before thecommittee".

Asked how long it would take for the committee to reach a decision in the matter, he said, "It is very difficult to say anything at this stage".

Kale had been accused of trying to buy his place into the Australia-bound Indian team last year by offering bribes to two national selectors.

This is the second round of hearing of the committee, as at its last hearing in the city on April 29, Kale and the two selectors had sought time to bring in witnesses to substantiate their respective claims.

Apart from the Board president the other members of the committee were BCCI vice-presidents Kamal Morarka and Ranbir Singh Mahendra.
