    BCCI unhappy with Lorgat?

    South Africa Cricket News: BCCI relationship Haroon Lorgat's top priority | ESPN Cricinfo

    WTF? Where does the BCCI get off even saying something like that? This isn't an ICC position - this is a board of another country.....

    This is old news...The BCCI tried to block his appointment as well. They threatened to not tour.

    LOL not surprised in the least. What's surprising is that there are still people (cough Bhogle/Manjrekar cough) who believe BCCI are not the bully of the neighborhood.

    India is really screwing with South Africa.

    They would rather cut the series against us - the No 1 Test side in the world - for series against WI and NZ, makes no sense.

    It is obviously punishment for our appointment of Lorgat.

    The BCCI seems intent on destroying world cricket.

    Haha, BCCI are such pricks.

    Nah, they aren't intent on destroying world cricket. They just don't like being challenged.

    Having number 1 v number 3 as a 2 Test series does Test cricket no favours.

    And India will be tied for second with England by the time the series starts. So what's the bigger joke, that 1v2 is a 2 test series or that India is arguably the second best test team in the world? lol

    You should rephrase that sentence and insert 'BCCIs self interest' instead of cricket in every situation and all their decisions will make complete sense. Except the UDRS, that still makes no sense..

    Well every board tries to act in its self interest, but BCCI has the muscle. Still should be called out but don't kid yourself. Just because boards aren't private franchises doesn't mean boards don't do what's good for them.

    The real shame is that the BCCI could do so much to grow the pie for themselves and everyone else, but seem more concerned with relative power.

    no, this isn't in the board's self interest.
    This is in the interests of the egos of the board members. How dare someone have an opinion different to theirs! How dare they be appointed on another country's board.

    Lorgat has offered to apologise (for what??) and they're still going on about it.

    There's no humility. They're interested in protecting their pride and their egos.
    It's childish and pathetic.

    They're trying to make an example out of him and CSA...and it's working. Notice the announcement of three India-related itineraries this week (WI, NZ, and England). Think it's a coincidence? I think every board is taking notice and deciding they're better off playing ball with the BCCI.

    But I do agree, it's not so much the board's interest as the individual board members' interests. Jagu's statement today was arrogant, pathetic, and smacked of something a mafia don would say to appear generous.

    This is absolutely humiliating. Knowing Lorgat, he will apologize to save the series.

    This power mongers are really annoying me now. I dont know how other countries can unite and do something about this. Being an Indian, this really is embarrassing as well.

    TBH I'm a bit ashamed as a NZer that we're taking on matches that coincide with what would have been the end of the full SA tour.
