Kolkata:

The BCCI working committee is meeting in Kolkata today to decide on telecast rights for international matches from 2004-05 to 2007-08. The bids have already been opened in Mumbai and the highest one is for Rs 1200 crore. The issue of graded system of payments for cricketers is also expected to feature on the meeting agenda. The players want the original proposal of three grades of players at Rs 60 lakh, Rs 30 lakh and Rs 15 lakh to be altered to Rs 50 lakh, Rs 35 lakh and Rs 20 lakh. They also want the reserves to be fixed at 70 per cent of the match fees, instead of 50 per cent as proposed earlier. The working committee is also likely to discuss the proposal to bring uniformity in terms of various posts of the Board, as currently some posts are for three years and some for four years.
