Mumbai: The annual one-day conclave of Ranji captains and coaches, along with the technical committee chairman Anil Kumble, is scheduled to be held here on March 5.

The one-day meet will discuss the 2012-13 season and invite suggestions from the captains and coaches for improvements, if needed, for the next season, Cricket Board sources said today.

The technical committee did an overhaul of the Ranji Trophy format at the end of last season by abolishing elite and plate divisions and bringing in a three-tier system featuring all teams in one division for this season.

The plus and minus points of this new format are expected to be discussed threadbare as also the new points system, laying emphasis on outright wins in the league phase.
