BCCI TO PUSH FOR RULE CHANGES: In Mumbai, Dwaipayan Datta reported the BCCI is "set to push for some rule changes" in the forthcoming Chief Executives Committee meeting of the ICC next week.

As per present playing conditions, "two new balls are used from two ends and that is creating major problems for the spinners" (TIMES OF INDIA, 9/15).
