* BCCI will follow the procedure as per the anti-doping code as in the case of Pradeep Sangwan.

* Nothing will be swept under the carpet, regarding MS Dhoni. We do not want to disturb our players, let the tournaments be over and then we will come back and talk to the media regarding the same. But we have changed our mode of working, we don't believe that you just be after any player, anybody, whether it is a befitting case or not.

* Therefore, what we have done is that players will have to declare their interests in sports management companies. If somebody is making a mistake, we will not be after him but we will try to get this entire procedure corrected. If we can help them till the last we will try and this is our last stand. We have decided on a modus operandi regarding the same issue, details of which will be furnished later.

* Another important point of discussion is the South African tour fixtures and the New Zealand tour dates - BCCI is in the process of finalizing the itineraries of the tour of South Africa and New Zealand. This will take a little more time. There are other sporting issues like the Asian Cricket Council etc, which need our attention. We will come out with a consolidated plan later.

* We discussed with BCCI's anti-corruption officer Ravi Sawani and took his vote and studied his report. We conducted inquiry on the three players, one of them is under custody - Ajit Chandila. The full inquiry cannot be completed till he is in jail. Suppose if this wait becomes too long, we will have to proceed. But at the moment, since Sawani is on leave, his son is getting married, and therefore after he comes back, we will wait for 10 days or a fortnight and then we'll take a decision.

* On whether the BCCI Committee will decide on Mr. N Srinivasan's return as president - probably yes. It is Mr. Srinivasan's decision whether or not to attend or chair the next meeting. Let him take a decision, I will follow and let you know.
