Mumbai:The International Cricket Council's (ICC) ten-year programme for Tests and ODIs is to undergo some changes at its Scheduling Summit, stated to be held in its new headquarters in Dubai later this month.

"The executive board of the ICC has recommended that the ten-year programme undergo some changes and the Scheduling Summit is to take place to address this issue in Dubai on August 25 and 26," sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told PTI today.

"The Summit would be attended by the representatives of various cricket boards along with the ICC's Cricket Operations manager," the sources said.

"A better picture about the long overdue visit to India by Bangladesh for a short series of two Tests and three ODIs would emerge after this meeting. We are trying to squeeze in this visit in our tight international programme," they added.

India are to visit Zimbabwe from August 23 for a tri-series also featuring the hosts and New Zealand before staying on to clash against the African nation in a two-Test series that's scheduled to end on September 24.

On their return, India would host Lanka in a five-match One-day series in October, South Africa in a best-of-seven limited over series in November and Lanka again in a three-Test series in December.

The Indians are then to leave for Pakistan in the first week of January, 2006 for a full tour to be followed by participation in the Asia Cup, also to be hosted by Pakistan. A tour of the West Indies is in the offing in June, but the dates are yet to be finalised.
