New Delhi:Stung by the Indian cricket team's recent string of reverses, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said it would initiate a "thorough and complete review" of the performance of the players and take immediate remedial steps.

The Board also said that it expected the selectors to take appropriate decisions in the wake of defeats in Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, which had disappointed the country.

BCCI President Ranbir Singh Mahendra said former Test cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri and S Venkatraghvan besides coach Greg Chappell will conduct the five-day review starting September 25.

"A thorough and complete review of individual performances, performance of the captain and the physical fitness of players would be carried out," Mahendra told Rajat Sharma in India TV's 'Aap Ki Adalat' programme to be telecast on Saturday.

Mahendra said he expected the selectors to take remedial steps soon after the Zimbabwe tour.

"They (selectors) are independent but I do expect the selectors to do something after this series," he said.

"I expect the players to do much better, I have myself talked to many of them, I have reminded them of the hopes and aspirations of the cricketing public. "Indeed, they too realise that the country is disappointed... all the players I have talked to said they are worried."
