Tri-series looms large

Chennai, Sep 14, 2013, PTI:

Top members of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) on Saturday discussed the modalities of the 2014 Asia Cup tournament, which is to be hosted by Bangladesh for a second straight time, in February-March next year.

The tournament, to be held from Feb 24 to March 8, has gone to Bangladesh after India, who had earlier agreed to host it, backed out citing a packed international schedule.

In the meeting, the BCCI also explored the possibility of hosting an ODI tri-series involving Pakistan and Sri Lanka later this year as a back-up plan for India’s trouble-hit tour of South Africa in November and December. A clearer picture will emerge after Monday’s meeting between BCCI’s secretary Sanjay Patel and South Africa Cricket chief Haroon Lorgat in Dubai.


India will play a short series against the West Indies in November and the New Zealand tour will start from January 19.

If the tri-series takes place in between these two tours, then the South African board would be left with no other option but to host India for two Tests, three one-day internationals and a Twenty20 international from December and ending with the New Year’s Test.
