International Cricket Council is sending its commercial manager Jamieson Campbell this weekend to meet up with representatives of the four staging centres of the September-October Champions Trophy in India.

"ICC's Jamieson Campbell would meet the representatives of all the four Champions Trophy staging centres on March 31 in Mumbai. The meeting is being held to address some small issues before the ICC gives its final clearance," informed a Cricket Board source.

It has already been decided that Mumbai's Cricket Club of India, Jaipur, Mohali and Ahmedabad are to host matches in the tournament with the final to be held at the CCI here for which the club is to install floodlights.

Meanwhile, the Board's working committee will meet in Mumbai on April 9 in which the Champions Trophy would be among the major items that would come up for discussion, according to the source.

"The course of action that has been initiated against (former BCCI chief) Jagmohan Dalmiya and three other ex-BCCI office-bearers named in the FIR filed with the Marine Drive police station by current secretary Niranjan Shah for alleged misappropriation of BCCI funds to the tune of Rs 21.74 lakh would be another major item on the agenda of the meeting," the source revealed.

Three other names in the FIR are ex-BCCI secretary S K Nair and former BCCI treasurers, Kishore Rungta and Jyoti Bajpai. The matter has now been taken up by the Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai Police who have been questioning the accused former board office bearers.
