"The agenda of this upcoming Working Committee meeting is same as it was for the one that was called off in Kolkata, last August. The main thing on the agenda will be discussion on the IPL Working Group's report about the way forward for IPL-9. As of now, there is little or you can say no chance of termination for Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals," a top BCCI and IPL Governing Council member said.
     
The IPL Working Group had suggested fresh bidding for two new teams to make it an eight-team IPL which is a must from the perspective of broadcasters and sponsors.
     
It was also suggested that after CSK and RR complete their two-year suspension period as per Supreme Court- appointed Lodha Committee's verdict, they will be re-inducted into the cash-rich league to make it a 10-team affair.
     
"Since we had decided to implement Lodha Committee's report in toto, we don't find any need to supercede them and decide on a fresh quantum of punishment," the official said.
     
It will be the final working committee meeting where the annual accounts will be passed and the date of the Annual General Meeting will also be decided.
     
BCCI President Manohar has already said that the board would not be vindictive towards any of its member.
