CSA planning to send Lorgat on leave to please BCCI?
The final decision regarding India's tour to South Africa is expected to be made "before the weekend".
ESPNcricinfo yesterday reported that Cricket South Africa (CSA) has offered to “send Lorgat on long leave” in order to ensure that the tour goes ahead.
According to the report, during the fruitful discussion between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and CSA on October 12, the Indian board had agreed to play two Tests and three ODIs in December on the condition that CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat is not involved in India affairs in future.
And it is understood that CSA has informed the BCCI bosses that they will be working out a plan before the end of the tour to ensure Lorgat is not involved in future dealings with the BCCI, the report stated.
There is a possibility that the BCCI may even agree to CSA’s wish of playing a three-Test series, instead of two, if the discussions end in agreement.
