Mumbai:The all-powerful working committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is to meet in Delhi on July 18 and 19.

Among the items listed on the agenda is the contract and graded payment to the players that has been hanging fire for so long. The scheme is expected to be implemented before the team's departure for the Asia Cup that is scheduled in Sri Lanka from July 16-August 1, according to BCCI sources.

The technical committee, headed by Sunil Gavaskar, had asked the captains and coaches to send in their feedbacks over a few points raised at the one-day conclave of Ranji trophy captains and coaches held in Mumbai last month like 'doing away with toss', among others, to make it an even playing field for the host as well as the visiting team in domestic matches.

The feedbacks have been received by the Board and they too form part of the agenda of the working committee meeting along with the report of the umpires committee.

BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya had interacted with one umpire's representative from each of the five zones, following a spate of complaints over umpiring standards in domestic ties, and had told them to shape up fast. He had also directed them to call bowlers with suspect action without fear or favour at the junior level to eradicate this menace.

The highly lucrative TV rights issue for international matches organised by BCCI is to come up soon with the conclusion of the agreement it has with the Prasar Bharati. But this is not listed on the agenda of the meeting pending the convening of the marketing committee to deliberate on thematter and send in its recommendations.
