The proposed itinerary for England's tour of India later this year has drawn flak from the British administrators as well as the media. The Indian Cricket Board today defended the schedule while keeping the doors open for a possible review. The BCCI said the venues were decided as per its rotational policy and nothing more should be made out of it. "The England and Wales Cricket Board has written to us about the fixtures and we will look into it," said Board Secretary S K Nair. "The schedule has been drawn up as per our rotational policy and only the Working Committee can review it in case it is needed," he said, amidst reports in the British press that the BCCI had agreed to reconsider the itinerary. a€Calculated insulta€ England are scheduled to play seven one-day internationals and three Test matches on their tour of India in March-April next year. The one-day matches have been allotted to lesser-known venues like Guwahati, Cochin and Indore, which has not only irked the ECB officials but also the media which has described the scheduling as "a calculated and deliberate insult".
