Cape Town - Following meetings in London over the past couple of days, CSA and the BCCI on Tuesday announced that the Proteas will play against India in an upcoming home series comprising of two Test matches and three One Day International matches, the specific dates and details of which will be announced in due course.

In addition, both parties have also agreed to continue with good faith discussions between their respective presidents about the possibility of agreeing further bilateral arrangements in respect of the scheduled fixtures between the two teams, and taking into account any scheduling imbalances from previous years.

The agreement to tour was concluded by the two boards after various concerns were raised around the recent ICC Board meeting in London about the alleged conduct of CSA’s Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat, and recent comments made about the ICC Board by a former legal advisor to CSA, David Becker.

The ICC and CSA have already refuted the comments made by Becker, and the ICC is now considering its legal options in respect of the same. In addition, the ICC will convene an investigation by an independent third party (to be appointed by the ICC) into the content and distribution of the media comments, subsequent attempts to have them withdrawn, and, in particular, the role of Lorgat in relation to these matters.

Pending the outcome of this investigation, CSA has ordered the withdrawal of Lorgat from representing it at the ICC’s Chief Executive’s Committee (or from acting in any other ICC-related matters), and CSA has also withdrawn him from having involvement in any aspect of CSA’s relationship with the BCCI, including but not limited to the upcoming tour.

All parties have agreed that this investigation will be carried out in private, that no further comment will be made until it has been concluded, and that its findings and recommendations will be binding upon CSA.
