Mumbai: The BCCI`s disciplinary committee, headed by its president N Srinivasan, will meet here tomorrow to discuss the report submitted by Ravi Sawani on the corruption allegations against five uncapped Indian players named in a television sting operation last month.

Mohnish Mishra, Shalabh Srivastava, TP Sudhindra, Amit Yadav and Abhinav Bali were banned by the BCCI on May 15, pending inquiry after a television sting operation claimed that they agreed to shadowy deals in the Indian Premier League and other matches.

All the five players will be present tomorrow to present their points of view before the panel whose other members are Board vice-presidents Arun Jaitely and Niranjan Shah, sources in the BCCI said.

Five uncapped Indian cricketers were alleged to have been caught indulging in corrupt practices, including spot-fixing, by a television channel which conducted a sting operation during this year`s IPL.

The BCCI, while suspending the concerned players, had also asked its Anti-Corruption Unit chief Sawani to conduct a probe in the matter.

Sawani has completed the probe and submitted his report to Srinivasan a few weeks back.
