Mumbai, Nov 2 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold a meeting of its office bearers here on November 11 to take a decision on whether to allow Chief Selector Dilip Vengsarkar to write a newspaper column or not.

BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah told UNI over phone today that though nothing has yet been decided, the Board is considering a ban on selectors, specially Vengsarkar as he is the only selector who writes for newspapers.

''We will hold a meeting and discuss this issue before arriving at a decision on whether a ban should be imposed or not,'' Shah said.

A BCCI source further said that at present there is no bar on a selector from writing a column, but any decision to the contrary can be taken when the Board's office bearers meet here on November 11.

Significantly, there appears to be a conflict of interest on the issue as the agency which syndicates Vengsarkar's column also represents the commercial interests of some other Indian cricketers, including one-day and Twenty20 captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
