BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel told ESPN Cricinfo, "After rounds of discussions over the last three weeks, the proposals were approved without any objection.

Two members (Sri Lanka and Pakistan) abstained from voting since they felt it wouldn't be prudent for them to take a call without the go-ahead of their respective boards."

South Africa who were vehemently against the revamp plan up until Friday, decided to make a U-turn in Saturday's meeting.

Patel said, "It was nice to see that they (CSA) have realised the need to support the proposal and the BCCI had no role to play in their so-called change of stance.

The BCCI and CSA had fruitful discussions and have almost reached bilateral agreements in the next cycle."
