Cape Town - The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India is upset at Cricket South Africa (CSA) for appointing Haroon Lorgat as CEO and is considering taking action.

According to the ESPNcricinfo website, at stake are CSA's partnership in the lucrative Champions League Twenty20 and the hosting of a full series against India later this year.

The BCCI's concerns over Lorgat's appointment as new CSA CEO were raised at a Champions League T20 (CLT20) meeting in London earlier this week.

The meeting, attended by representatives of the BCCI, Cricket Australia and CSA, was not a pleasant one - and according to one source it got "very uncomfortable".

The BCCI said it hadn't ruled out ending the CLT20 association with CSA, which like CA holds a stake, although South African teams' participation was to continue regardless.

CSA was under pressure from the BCCI not to appoint Lorgat as CEO because of his strained relationship with India's board during his four years in charge at the ICC. Lorgat irked the BCCI with his positive stance on the Decision Review System (DRS).
