Mumbai: With time running out and India's various plans to travel to South Africa, BCCI now has no choice but to sit at a table with Cricket South Africa (CSA) and reschedule the series.
BCCI is still trying to see if the three test matches can be reduced to two, giving the Indian team more time before flying. Any calls to this effect will likely be answered within the next 48 hours.
The Indian cricketer remains unconvinced by the tour yet to play three Tests, three One-Day Internationals, and four T20Is. Arriving in Mumbai to play the second Test against New Zealand and knowing that the vital bubble is immediately expected to enter, players have many questions and no answers.
Team members recently raised a series of questions as news began arriving over the past two weeks of a very rapid switch to a news release in countries such as South Africa and Botswana. However, both the BCCI and Cricket South Africa (CSA) said that while the chain could unfold within a very strict biosecurity bubble, minimal air travel would be required within South Africa to ensure the chain occurs, thus minimizing any outside influence. .

The first two Tests are slated to take place in Johannesburg and Centurion at a distance from each other, while the third Test and white-ball matches are scheduled to take place in Cape Town and Paarl, again a short drive away.
The Indian leadership was determined to bring the players back and answer the questions posed. TOI understands that BCCI has accepted the idea of answering these questions in the form of questions and answers, which has not yet happened.
“Until the players get a response from the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry, there will be confusion because no one knows anything. But if you look at the statement from a ministerial department in the South African government, it emphasizes the security operation. Thanks to BCCI that the two countries share a deep bond. It's his way of saying, "Come on and we'll take care of it. The ball is in the court of the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry now.”
For the record, the South Australian Department of International Relations wrote to the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry this week.
Those in the know say the BCCI is confident in the tour and the fact that it can be done within a strict biological bubble, especially with the guarantees the South African government and the CSA have made in favor of the setup. However, the Indian Board of Directors has yet to consider the possible renegotiation and rescheduling as it is short on time.
Despite the CSA's guarantee, BCCI will also have to make efforts to explain security protocols to players and this can only happen through conversations.
“There is no sign of talks yet. Officials are busy preparing for the general assembly meeting in Kolkata on December 4. There is also a meeting of the IPL board of directors. Where is the time? Now they should be in an active mode now. It has been,” the sources said.
From Wednesday, the Indian team will be busy with the second Test in Mumbai and again it takes time to sit at the table with the players and talk about it. In such a case, BCCI has no choice but to reschedule the series.
In the meantime, it must be said that this tour from South Africa to India will be very important for the CSA and its finances, especially since the pandemic will have a significant impact on the gambling economy in their country. "If the tour doesn't take off, the CSA is going to take a big hit in the knee," say those who follow those events.
