New Delhi:A shake up in the various committees and a decision on team sponsorship is expected when the newly elected office bearers of the Cricket Board assemble for the first Working Committee meeting in Mumbai on Sunday.

The Indian team's sponsorship deal with Sahara ended today but the contract has been extended to cover the three-Test series against Sri Lanka starting with the first match in Chennai from Friday.

The National Selection Committee has already undergone a change, with three of the five men being replaced.

Sanjay Jagdale (Central Zone), Bhupinder Singh (North) and Ranjib Biswal (East) replaced Gopal Sharma, Yashpal Sharma and Pranab Roy respectively.

With the Pawar-camp making a clean sweep, the Marketing Committee, which has the powers to decide on the television rights, would also be reconstituted.

"There will be several major decisions," said Lalit Modi, one of the five new Vice Presidents, without revealing further details.

Quizzed further, Modi said, "let us first receive all the papers (regarding television rights). (Jagmohan) Dalmiya has them all, he has not even let (Ranbir Singh) Mahendra (the ousted President) see them." Modi said one of his priorities as the Rajasthan Cricket Association chief would be to ensure that Jaipur is made a regular Test centre.
