Kolkata :Some of the top Indian players could be seen in action at a charity match in Ahmedabad next week although the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said it had no knowledge about the proposed fixture.

"We are not aware of any such match and if some players are participating in that, they will be doing it in their individual capacity," a BCCI source said in Kolkata when asked to comment on the status of the proposed match, which would help raise funds for the cancer-afflicted daughter of veteran Ranji cricketer Kedar Chavan.

He further said that nobody had approached the Board for permission for holding such a match.

Dubbed as the 'Clash of the right-handers and left-handers', the match at Motera Stadium on June 5 could see skipper Sourav Ganguly leading the left-handers while his deputy Rahul Dravid would be the captain of the right-handed team.

Most of the members of the Indian team are expected to participate in the One-day match.

The participation of Sachin Tendulkar, however, was doubtful as he is currently holidaying in Europe.

Chavan's 11-year-old daughter Kaveri is suffering from hydrocephalus, a rare congenital deformity which affects one in a million babies.
