Mumbai:

The Working Committee of the Cricket Board will have its first meeting on Saturday after it was constituted in September 2008.

"It's the first meeting of the Committee after its formation. Routine matters like tabling of reports of sub committees (including the Indian Premier League) would be taken up," BCCI sources said.

The BCCI's powerful body would also be given the list of the players' contracts which were finalised by the Gradation Committee, according to the sources.

They pleaded ignorance when asked whether changes may be effected in the contracted list of players that needs to be ratified by the Working Committee.

"The Gradation Committee has been empowered to finalise the list of players to be contracted. It cannot be said with finality whether changes to that list would be effected or not. The Working Committee members would be given the list," the sources informed.

There were rumblings that players like Mumbai's top run-getter Ajinkya Rahane, leading wicket-taker Dhaval Kulkarni and Saurashtra's in-form batsman Cheteshwar Pujara have been left out of the contracted list of players.

Former chief selector and ex-India skipper Dilip Vengsarkar has questioned the rationale behind choosing the players and grading them in Group A, B, C and D and wanted to know how these three players have not been considered good enough to make the list.

Vengsarkar, as the head of the selection panel, was among the decision makers when the previous list of contracted players was finalised by the BCCI for the 2007-08 season.
