Mumbai:Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary S K Nair today admitted that grey areas remained in the functioning of the BCCI like absence of a permanent team manager, media manager and its own dedicated website.

"These are grey areas and the Board is aware of them and is serious to set things right," Nair told reporters after attending a meeting of Board's Tours Programmes and Fixtures Committee, of which he is the convenor.

The committee finalised the venues and dates for the forthcoming 12 One-day internationals against Sri Lanka and South Africa in October-November.

Speaking further Nair said the need for a permanent team manager became evident during the Indian squad's departure for Zimbabwe on August 22 when a few players reported late at the team hotel near the airport.

"They (managers) keep changing and that's not good. We are aware of the need for a permanent manager and are serious about appointing one," he said adding that the other grey areas were absence of a dedicated website and a media manager.

Nair said there was no immediate threat of the Board's headquarters being shifted to Delhi.

"We have received a proposal from the Mumbai Cricket Association to locate it inside its premises. It's under consideration," he said.
