The BCCI has called a meeting of its working committee in Chennai on October 26, where the progress over the Indian team’s South Africa tour is expected to come up for discussion and approval.
“An emergent meeting of the BCCI working committee will take place on October 26 in Chennai,” a board official said.
Though the agenda of the meeting is not clear, the progress over India’s tour of South Africa is likely to come up.
Current indications are that the tour would take place in December with the BCCI wanting the team to play a warm-up game before the expected two-Test series and the ODI rubber in the limited time available before the team travels to New Zealand.
According to reports, Cricket South Africa wants the Test series to be a three-game affair.
Sachin Tendulkar’s farewell from the game too would be discussed.
