The decks for India’s tour of South Africa may get cleared by the third week of this month as BCCI has invited Cricket South Africa (CSA) president Chris Nenzani for discussions on the proposed bilateral series.

Interestingly, CSA’s chief executive Haroon Lorgat has not been invited for the discussions which could help both the Boards chalk out a decisive roadmap regarding the fate of series.

“I have sent a formal invitation to the CSA president to come to India for a detailed discussion regarding the series.

“The dates of the proposed meeting is yet to be chalked out but the venue will either be Mumbai or Chennai. Once CSA informs us on the schedule of the president, we will announce the date of the meeting,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel told PTI on Tuesday. Asked whether Lorgat will also be present for the meeting, Patel said, “No.”

“The invitation has only been extended to the president of the Cricket South Africa,” he said. Sanjay informed that he has been in talks with the CSA for some time now.
