Mumbai: The Governing Council of the Indian Premier League, headed by Rajiv Shukla, will meet in Mumbai on Tuesday to take stock of the last edition of the tournament that concluded on May 27. "It's a normal meeting, a follow-up of the tournament," said Cricket Board's Chief Administrative Officer Ratnkar Shetty.

Though IPL-5 is considered a big success with all the stadiums drawing capacity crowds, some controversies also dogged the cash-rich event. A sting operation carried out by a TV channel had claimed that five uncapped Indian cricketers agreed to indulge in corrupt practices.

The BCCI immediately suspended the five players from all cricket conducted under its aegis and also initiated an inquiry by its newly appointed head of its anti-corruption wing Ravi Sawani who has submitted his report to the Board.

The council, headed by Rajiv Shukla, will meet in Mumbai to take stock of the last edition of the IPL.

The report will now be studied by BCCI's disciplinary panel consisting of President N Srinivasan and Vice Presidents Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah.

Shetty, however, said that Sawani's report would not be discussed at the IPL Governing Council meeting.

The Governing Council meeting will be preceded by a meeting of the Board's Technical Committee which would discuss issues raised and suggestions given for improvement of domestic cricket at the captains' and coaches' conclave held in March.

Among the suggestions to be taken up by the committee, headed by Sourav Ganguly, are conducting matches on uncovered wickets at the Under-22 level and points system overhaul in Ranji Trophy to encourage teams from pursing outright victories.
