Mumbai, Aug 25 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today said they were ready to discuss the issue of Twenty20 cricket making its appearance in the 2010 Commonwealth Games at its AGM if the organising committee puts forth a proposal before them.

Speaking to UNI, BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah said today that if the proposal comes then we will put it up at the BCCI AGM - which is a proper forum for taking a decision on the matter.

The BCCI AGM is slated to be held in Mumbai on September 27 and 28.

Shah was reacting to 2010 CWG Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi's statement in Delhi today that it was for the BCCI now to decide whether to include Twenty20 cricket in the Games to be hosted in the capital.

''There is still a chance that cricket may be included in the Games. But for that the BCCI needs to act as the ball is in their court,'' 2010 Games Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi had said in Delhi today.
