It is learnt that Dalmiya and his supporters will push for the appointment of Sourav Ganguly in some capacity with regards to the Indian cricket team. Since Ganguly has other commitments like television commentary and a television show, he may not be able to be Duncan Fletcher's successor, but he could be a consultant to the team.
PTI adds: The bilateral FTPs will also be discussed with the all-powerful committee likely to clear two short away tours to Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

However, the issue that could be deliberated at length is the amount of Rs 5 lakh that was recorded as the valuation of de-merger of Chennai Super Kings from its parent company India Cements. The issue has caused quite a stir at the recently-concluded IPL Governing Council meeting in New Delhi and the topic is sure to come up for discussion.

It is learnt that Chennai Super Kings Private Limited, after its de-merger from its parent company India Cements, have been valued at Rs 5 lakh as per documents that were handed over to IPL Governing Council. The appointment of former Delhi Police Commissioner Kumar as chief consultant of Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) along with Madhusudan Sharma as his assistant will also be ratified at the meeting.
