The members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) technical committee under the chairmanship of Anil Kumble met at the head quarters of Indian cricket at Mumbai. Though any final decision was not taken but several issues were considered including neutral venues for Ranji Trophy knockouts.

During the conclave some teams had also requested for neutral venues during the knockout stages of Ranji Trophy, and the former leg-spinner said that rather than making venues neutral, specific venues would be short-listed.
