Cricket South Africa Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat and BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel had a “constructive” meeting in Dubai on Monday to consider India’s tour to South Africa later this year.

According to a CSA press release, the meeting was arranged between the two Boards following concerns raised by the BCCI around the schedule that was released by CSA.

Lorgat expressed his satisfaction at the meeting. 

“I am happy to say that we had a constructive meeting, and I would like to thank Sanjay for his friendliness and support in trying to find a way forward,” said Lorgat.

“After listening to Sanjay, it is clear that we will now have to wait for the BCCI’s AGM to be completed before any tour schedule can be confirmed.”

“It is key for all of us to make sure that the good relationship between our respective Boards is maintained, and, in fact, strengthened, and that we also honour the proud history between our two countries.

“Our Board Presidents are also in discussion, and we will now arrange for them to meet soon after the BCCI AGM.”
