BCCI assures TNCA: will bear expenses for Australia
TNCA had written to the BCCI expressing their inability to incur the pre-series expenses of visiting Australians in Chennai, giving an estimate of Rs 1.5 crores
The Australian cricket team will arrive in India for their upcoming limited overs tour as per schedule on September 8th with their travel and stay being taken care of.
This after the Board of Control for cricket in India (BCCI) Committee of administrators (CoA) assured the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) that the expenses for security cover and conduct of the warm-up game for Australia before the first ODI in Chennai will be borne by the BCCI.
TNCA had written to the BCCI expressing their inability to incur the pre-series expenses of visiting Australians in Chennai, giving an estimate of Rs 1.5 crores.
"We have asked them to raise invoices which will be taken care of by the BCCI. There are no further pending issues on this matter," COA member Diana Eduljee told India Today after the CoA meeting.
TNCA Vice President PS Raman also confirmed to India Today that following this assurance they have no problems in playing good hosts to the Aussies. "They have assured us that the pre tour expenses will be borne by the board," he said.
In addition to team security there are other expenses like transport, ambulance, medical team as well as practice facilities for the visiting team's pre-tour warm-ups.
Issues over handling visiting team expenditure for international cricket in India have been cropping up for the past one year following the BCCI state units' refusal to toe the Supreme Court line over implementation of reforms leading to freezing of their funds.  
Steve Smith-led Australia will be in India next month for a limited overs series consisting of five ODIs and three T20s starting September 17th.
