BCCI to pull out of South Africa tour?

BCCI to pull out of South Africa tour

New Delhi: India might pull out of the upcoming South Africa tour in protest of a possibility that former ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat might be selected for the top job of Cricket South Africa (CSK).

According to the sources, BCCI wants to put pressure on the CSA as the interim BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya might not want Logart to be selected for the post.

Earlier the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wants changes in fixtures released by CSA. The BCCI claimed that CSA didn’t discuss the tournament schedule before finally releasing it.

The Press Trust of India quoted BCCI interim head Jagmohan Dalmiya as saying India is unhappy with the uneven gaps between the three Tests, with a two-day break between the first and second matches and eight days off between the second and third. The BCCI also thinks the seven one-day internationals are too many.

But Cricket South Africa does not take much time to state that any disagreement over the dates of matches on India`s tour starting in November will be dealt with in the normal amicable manner between the two national bodies. South Africa`s cricket body says its Indian counterpart is “welcome to raise any issues” it has over the schedule for their upcoming series.
