CSA loses $20m due to India's short tour

Johannesburg, Dec 5: Cricket South Africa (CSA) is set to lose $20 million due to India's truncated tour this month, according to a report.

A report in "DNA" newspaper said CSA will incur a revenue loss of Rand 200 million ($20m) due to India's shortened tour of three One Day Internationals and two Tests.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) were unhappy with CSA appointing Haroon Lorgat as its CEO. An upset BCCI decided to trim the tour to 25 days from 61 days.

According to ICC's Future Tours Programme (FTP), India were to play 3 Tests, 7 ODIs and 2 Twenty20 Internationals. But the FTP schedule was scrapped by BCCI due to Lorgat's issue.

"DNA" published an excerpt from a CSA document which stated: "On April 30, 2012, CSA reported "total comprehensive income" of (Rand) ZAR295,579,000 for the 12 previous months. By contrast, for the 12-month period from April 30, 2010 to April 30, 2011, which, of course, encompassed an India tour to South Africa, CSA's revenue was ZAR727,472,000."
