The National Cricket Academy (NCA) director operations Dav Whatmore will conduct the BCCI Level A coaching course at Eden Gardens from July 8.

Thirty aspiring coaches will attend the six-day course as other members of the faculty will include Dinesh Nanavati (batting), Bharat Arun (bowling) and Dr Kinjal Suratwala (sports science), Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Joint Secretary Samar Paul said.

The CAB at its working committee meeting decided to appoint an auditor after the office bearers came under fire about alleged lack of transparency in dealing with monetary matters after the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The auditor will submit the report as early as possible and then the CAB will submit it to the Board, Paul said.

Among other decisions, the CAB changed the existing one-day format of the P. Sen Memorial tournament to a Twenty20 one and scrapped the junior 110-point tournament.

Under the new format, the P. Sen Memorial tournament will be held in the first week of July, Paul said.
