India's tour to South Africa hits another roadblock: Sources

New Delhi: India's tour to South Africa has run into fresh trouble and indications are that there could be a massive upheaval if the tour finally has to go ahead.

CNN-IBN has learnt from highly placed sources in the South African cricket board that talks between the BCCI and CSA on the sidelines of the ICC meeting in London fell through.

Sources close to the negotiations have said that CSA legal advisor David Becker's unprovoked attack on BCCI chief N Srinivasan has all but derailed the tour.

CSA Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat's alleged role in Becker's outburst is now the focus of the Indian board's anger.

CNN-IBN has also learnt that the South African board convened an emergency meeting on Sunday to discuss this issue.

Earlier this month CNN-IBN had reported that the two boards had agreed in principle to go ahead with a two Tests, three ODIs tour with the possibility of a third Test.

With the BCCI having called a meeting of its Working Committee in Chennai on October 26, the progress of the Indian team's South Africa tour is expected to come up for discussion and approval.

Though the agenda of the meeting is not clear, team's South Africa tour, which still hangs in balance, is likely to come up.
