Mumbai :The one day conclave of all the Ranji Trophy captains and coaches would be held in Mumbai on June 4, according to sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The conclave has been convened to discuss the conduct of various domestic tournaments last season and elicit suggestions from the participants for any further improvement.

At least one former India captain, Polly Umrigar, has come out in public against inclusion of a foreign team in the Duleep Trophy tournament as was done last year when England 'A' team took part.

Umrigar feels that the presence of a foreign team in this inter-zonal tournament, which was given the utmost respect and routinely served as a selection trial ahead of an international season by the BCCI in the bygone days, dilutes its importance.
