The crucial two-day conclave of the Indian cricket board commenced in Mumbai on Friday to chalk out the future course for Indian cricket which is at the crossroads following the World Cup debacle and coach Greg Chappell's resignation.
The endeavour began with the fact-finding meeting involving the outgoing coach, captain Rahul Dravid, manager Sanjay Jagdale and selection panel chief Dilip Vengsarkar who are closeted in a Cup review sitting with the BCCI's office bearers headed by president Sharad Pawar.
Chappell, who had put an end to his tempestuous and controversy-ridden 22-month stint by intimating Pawar of his intention not to seek renewal of his expired contract, and Jagdale are slated to submit their tour reports to the cricket board's mandarins at the first meeting.
After this opening session, the office bearers are set to meet seven former captains in the afternoon to find out the exact course that needs to be charted out for Indian cricket to pull itself out of the morass it has slipped into.
