Mumbai:The uncertainty over former India captain Sunil Gavaskar attending today's review committee meeting of the BCCI ended after the cricket legend decided to take part in it despite his father's sudden illness and hospitalisation at Pune.

"Gavaskar will be attending the meeting," a source close to Gavaskar, one of the six members of the BCCI review committee, told PTI here.

Among other things, the review committee will discuss the much publicised spat between captain Sourav Ganguly and coach Greg Chappell. The coach's "leaked" confidential e-mail to the Board President, in which he has levelled serious charges against Ganguly, would also be taken up for discussion.

Earlier, Gavaskar's attendance in the meeting was uncertain because of his tight schedule as he was to take a flight to Australia late in the evening after visiting his ailing father in Pune, who was hospitalised yesterday.

The close source had said he (Gavaskar) would attend the BCCI meeting if he succeeds in changing his travel plans and is able to take the flight tomorrow morning.

Gavaskar is the chairman of the International Cricket Council's Cricket Committee (Playing) and is also the head of the ICC's selection committee for the Rest of World team, which would take on Australia in the forthcoming Super Series.
