Johannesburg, Sept 3: BCCI has approved rival tours both preceding and following the scheduled Indian visit to South Africa, indicating that almost half of the proposed matches between the two nations will not happen.
According to Sport24, The BCCI announced on Sunday that it had given the green light for a previously unscheduled tour of India by moderate West Indies (comprising both Tests and one-day internationals) in November, while also approving an itinerary for India’s trip to New Zealand.
The BCCI is yet to formally approve the itinerary for the SA tour, which CSA says will include three Tests, two Twenty20 internationals and as many as seven money-spinning ODIs, the report said.
Instead the Indian bosses now reportedly want a mere two Tests, three ODIs and the two T20 matches, the report added.
The BCCI was not happy with Haroon Lorgat’s appointment as Cricket South Africa chief, earlier. (ANI)
