The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday held discussions with national selectors, coaches and National Cricket Academy officials "as part of its effort to bring in a uniform coaching structure and skill management in camps as well as streamlining its operations," according to Sunil Subbaiah of the TIMES OF INDIA. The meeting was chaired by BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale, who said: "This meeting is basically to have better coordination between the NCA, the (Indian team's) support staff and the 'A' team's support staff, so that there is uniformity in fitness levels and skill management." No decision was made on the appointment of an NCA director operations, a post that has been vacant since Sandip Patil became the chairman of selectors.
