Mumbai, Dec 16 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today decided in the working committee that the seven-point guidelines issued to the selectors will stay as they are.
BCCI treasurer M Srinivasan told mediapersons that the guidelines were decided upon by the office-bearers and, therefore, any decision on repealing them will be taken by the office-bearers themselves.
Mr Srinivasan said that no decision regarding compensation to the selectors for not writing columns has yet been taken.
Speaking about the other proposals which were passed by the technical committee today, Mr Srinivasan said these changes will be implemented in the Ranji Trophy format from the next season.
According to the new format, three from each group of the elite division and the top two teams from the plate division will play a knock-out quarter-final league. This decision was taken because the teams in the plate division felt that they were not playing for the Ranji Trophy.
The Board has also decided to increase the infrastructure facilities from Rs 25 crore to Rs 50 crore for the different state associations.
The working committee also ratified the two-year ban on a journalist which was taken during the Bangalore test.
The BCCI also held a special general body meeting before the working committee meet which approved the formation of the Indian Premier League as a committee of the Board.
