BCCI and CSA headed for showdown
Wednesday 10 May 2017

 

 
The Board of Control for Cricket in India BCCI and Cricket South Africa (CSA) are headed for a face-off.
CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat has dashed a letter to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri requesting for a confirmation for India's tour of South Africa with the Boxing Day Test later this year. Lorgat has clearly stated that it would be a prerequisite to allowing South African cricketers to continue playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The Times of India reports that Johri confirmed and added that he had chosen to "ignore" the request. "I didn't even bother to communicate. We will communicate when the time is right," Johri told TOI.
TO show that he means business Lorgat has decided not to extend the window for South African cricketers playing in the IPL. The deadline for South Africans in IPL came to an end on May 8, following which they have now left their respective franchises.
CSA, for the record, expects India to make the tour of South Africa in December this year, keeping the Boxing Day Test in mind whereas the BCCI has not confirmed anything yet. 
The South African cricket board, which voted against the BCCI at the recent Board meeting of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in both finance and governance policy changes, expects India also to support their proposed Global Destination T20 League for which a window is yet to be created. South Africa expects the league to be played in the month of November while India is already in a fix trying to confirm its home season going forward, especially in the wake of ICC developments.
