Mumbai, Dec 4 (UNI) Chairman of the selection committee Dilip Vengsarkar is still undecided on going to Bangalore to attend the selection committee meeting even after the BCCI promised to look into the issues raised by him.

The selection committee meeting has been called to select the team for the third Test against Pakistan and for the tour of Australia, which follows later this month.

Chief Selector Dilip Vengsarkar said here today he will speak to Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) President Sharad Pawar and decide on whether to attend tomorrow's selection committee meeting.

''I will find out what Sharad Pawar has said. I will talk to him and decide whether to go to the meeting tomorrow or not,'' Vengsarkar told the media at Wankhede Stadium.

Vengsarkar was seen having a long converstion with Maharashtra Cricket Association President Ajay Shirke, who is considered close to Pawar.

Shirke might be trying to convince Vengsarkar, who has offered to quit in the wake of the BCCI banning him from writing newspaper columns and set a deadline of today for a reply from the BCCI on his demands.

Shirke, however, denied discussing the matter with Vengsarkar.

BCCI climbed down in its standoff with the chief selector, describing his demands as 'legitimate' and promising to look into the matter of providing compensation for not writing columns during the working committee meeting to be held here on December 16.

Vengsarkar had claimed Rs 40 lakh as compensation from the Board, which BCCI had initially rejected.
