Dubai, Feb 17 (IANS) The chief executive committee of the International Cricket Council (ICC) will meet in Kuala Lumpur for a two-day summit Wednesday to discuss how to shorten the duration of the 2011 World Cup cricket. The proposed formats for the 2011 World Cup include 14 and 16 team options, all of which are capable of being played over a shorter duration than the 2007 event and the chief executive committee will review the potential formats for the event.

The two-day discussion will also include the Future Tours Program (FTP), increased use of technology and the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The committee will review a proposal by the ICC management on the use of technology in decision-making.

The proposal has been produced following directions from the ICC cricket committee and suggests trying “umpire decision review system” during the England-South Africa Test series to be played in England in July-August this year.

According to the proposal, the captain of the fielding team or the batsman, as the case may be, will be entitled to a limited number of occasions to request the on-field umpire to review his decision in consultation with the TV umpire.

The 0CEC will review this proposal and make a recommendation to the ICC board. If the trial is given the go-ahead by the board, the final playing conditions will be developed in consultation with the ICC cricket committee.

The executive committee will also discuss a range of issues arising out of the Indian Premier League and the rebel Indian Cricket League.

The committee will provide the ICC management with feedback and comment on the proposed programmes and, the ICC board will then review the recommendations when it meets here in March.
