BCCI objects to the itinerary of India’s tour of South Africa


The Board of Control for Cricket in India has reportedly objected to the schedule of India’s tour to South Africa later this year, saying it was prepared by Cricket South Africa without the BCCI’s consent.

BCCI interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya said on Tuesday that the itinerary of the tour, which begins in November, is being reworked.

Dalmiya said the gaps between some matches in the itinerary were not sufficient and hence it would be amended.

“The gaps between the Tests need to be looked into and there are a few more things that need to be rectified,” Dalmiya said.

He added that the respective cricket boards of the two countries would sort out the schedule of the tour and the media should not make an issue out of it.

“There was a bit of misunderstanding. We have informed this to our South African counterparts and the two boards are sorting it out amicably. We don’t want to make an issue about it.”….
