BCCI and Cricket South Africa have been at loggerheads since the latter appointed Lorgat as its CEO. Lorgat's differences with BCCI were well known since the time the South African was the CEO of ICC when he locked horns with Srinivasan on a number of issues, including the use of controversial Decision Review System.

BCCI remains silent on India's tour of South Africa

Chennai:

India cricket team's year-end tour of South Africa remained in limbo as BCCI members didn't have any discussion on the series during its AGM in Chennai on Sunday.


According to a BCCI official, who attended the meeting, the SA series was not even in the agenda of the AGM and only after Supreme Court allows president N Srinivasan to officially assume charge can the matter be sorted out.

"There has been no discussion on the South Africa series. It was not in the agenda but obviously any discussion can take place with the permission from the floor of the house. But since our secretary (Sanjay Patel) has informed CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat that our president will take call, it all depends on whatever Mr Srinivasan decides," a senior office-bearer told PTI on Sunday.

CSA had announced an itinerary of three Test matches, seven ODIs and two T20 Internationals which was shot down by the BCCI who want a much shorter series.

The BCCI snubbed back CSA by hastily arranging a two Test, five ODI series against the West Indies while they have already confirmed the schedule for their series against New Zealand starting in January.
