Mumbai:The Working Committee meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), scheduled here on December 4, would discuss the new players' contract and the recommendations of the Tours Programmes and Fixtures Committee that has been urgently convened to meet the previous day.

"The players' contract is to come up for discussion along with the decisions taken by the Fixtures committee which has been convened urgently," BCCI Executive secretary in charge, Ratnakar Shetty said today.

The term of the earlier players' contract has already expired and a new one is yet to be inked though a preliminary report, including recommendations on changes in clauses, after talking to senior players, by a three-member special committee is with the BCCI.

The Fixtures committee is to decide on the venue of the third and final India-Sri Lanka Test, scheduled between Dec 16-22, following the inability expressed by the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association to host it at Kanpur's Green Park stadium.

The sub-committee, headed by BCCI vice president Shashank Manohar of Vidarbha, is also to decide on changes requested over the two warm-up games scheduled for England at Jamshedpur and Agartala and over the venues for the seven-match limited over series that's to follow the three-Test series.

The decisions of the Tours Fixtures committee would have to be approved by the working committee.

Asked whether any new sub-committees not already formed at the AGM would be decided at the working committee meeting, Shetty said newly elected BCCI president Sharad Pawar would do so on his own. Among important sub-committees not finalised at the AGM is the marketing committee, he added.
