Mumbai: The Cricket Board`s marketing committee is to meet here tomorrow prior to its special general body meeting convened to decide the fate of suspended IPL chief Lalit Modi.

The marketing committee would decide on issue of tenders for sale of title sponsorship rights for its home rubbers of Tests and ODIs, BCCI sources said today.

Tenders would be floated for TV production rights too by the BCCI as only broadcasting rights have been bagged by Nimbus, the sources added.

A meeting of the Board`s Corporate Trophy Committee is also scheduled in the morning to chalk out the programme and venue for the tournament, according to the sources.

BCCI is set to host matches against Australia and New Zealand in the 2010-11 season in October, November and December.

India and Australia are scheduled to play two Tests at Mohali and Bangalore and a series of three ODIs at Kochi, Goa and Vishakapatnam between October 2 and 24.

Later New Zealand are scheduled to visit the country to play three Tests (Ahmedabad, Kanpur and expectedly Nagpur) between November 4 and 24 before taking part in a five-match ODI series with matches scheduled at Bangalore, Mohali, Chennai, Guwahati and Hyderabad.
