BCCI agrees to two-Test, three-ODI tour of South Africa: Sources

The BCCI will approve the tour at their next Working Committee meeting, scheduled to be held on October 26 in Chennai.

The impasse between the Board of Conrol for Cricket in India and Cricket South Africa over India's proposed tour to South Africa seems to have finally ended. According to sources, the BCCI has agreed to a two-Test, three-ODI series against the African nation. The tour is likely to begin with a warm-up match with the final dates and schedule to be decided next week.

The BCCI will approve the tour at their next Working Committee meeting, scheduled to be held on October 26 in Chennai. However, the Indian Board has rejected a proposal by CSA to include a Twenty20 match as part of the series.

The CSA had earlier announced three Tests, seven ODIs and a T20match as part of the series but BCCI rejected the proposal immediately. They were apparently angry because the South Africans announced the details without consulting them. To snub the South Africans, the BCCI decided to play an unscheduled two-Test, three-ODI series against the West Indies at home in November. This includes Sachin Tendulkar's farewell 200th Test.
