The Decision Review System will also be discussed during the meeting.

The two-day meet, to be chaired by ICC Chief Executive Officer Haroon Lorgat, will also consider the host country of the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy.

“Among the matters up for discussion are the ICC events for the period 2012-2020 and beyond as well update on Decision Review System, online piracy and the Future Tours Programme post-2012,” an ICC statement said.

“The Chief Executive Committee will receive an update report on preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.

“It will also receive update reports on global response to broadcast piracy and online infringements, match officials’ performances, the anti-racism and anti-doping codes and international cricket results,” it added.

With the BCCI backing its players in not being signatories  to WADA’s ‘whereabouts’ clause, the issue will have to be dealt with carefully.

The Cheif Executive Committee will also begin discussions on the location and scheduling of ICC events for the period after 2015.

ICC President David Morgan and the Chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee Clive Llyod, will also attend the meeting, which will be the fourth such gathering this year. The CEC comprises the chief executives of the 10 Test-playing Members and three representatives from the ICC Associate and Affiliate Members.
