League Notes: BCCI Formally Invites CSA President For Discussions On SA Tour
A meeting of "almost every state and Test cricket player will take place" in Sydney next week to "discuss rising concerns with the state of Australian cricket and propose solutions to the problems, which they will present to Cricket Australia before the end of the year." The players are "particularly worried about the overcrowded schedule, the prioritisation of the Big Bash League over Sheffield Shield and other domestic cricket plus a range of other issues they believe are behind declining performances" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 10/9). ... The decks for India's tour of South Africa "may get cleared by the third week of this month" as the Board of Control for Cricket in India has invited Cricket South Africa President Chris Nenzani "for discussions on the proposed bilateral series" (PTI, 10/8).
