"Ehsan Mani and Malcolm Speed would attend the meeting as special invitees. This has been done as part of the ICC's endeavour to bring all its units closer," BCCI joint secretary, Prof Ratnakar Shetty, said in Mumbai on Wednesday.
"They would attend the meeting on July 18," he added. The BCCI's all-powerful committee is scheduled to continue its deliberations on the next day too.
Mani and Speed have made visits to some other full member countries of ICC with the same agenda in mind.
