Bangalore:Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday said it wants the contract system to be acceptable to all, and is awaiting the feedback from players who want to discuss some points in it amongst themselves.

"We want the arrangement to be acceptable to all. We don't want to rush through the whole thing. Nothing is binding on our part to expedite (signing of the contract with players)," BCCI secretary S K Nair said in Bangalore.

According to him, discussions with players have reached a level where most of the issues have been resolved.

BCCI was keen to see that the contract was signed before the Asia Cup commencing this week in Colombo, he said.

"On a few points, players have said they would revert back to us after discussing them amongst themselves," Nair said, but refused to go into details regarding those "few points".

"We are waiting for the feedback (from players)," added Nair who was in Bangalore to attend a meeting of the BCCI's technical committee, of which Sunil Gavaskar is the chairman.

Nair confirmed that the working committee of the BCCI would take place in Delhi for two days from July 18.

Itinerary of the coming four Test series against Australia and the two Test ones against South Africa at home would be finalised at the meeting, Nair added.
