CSA chief Lorgat 'distressed' over inquiry into BCCI dispute during ICC tenure

Johannesburg, Nov 10 : Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Haroon Lorgat said that he is distressed that he is having to face an inquiry into a dispute with the Indian cricket board during his time as head of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Lorgat, who served as ICC chief executive between 2008-11, became a bone of contention between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and CSA, with BCCI threatening to cancel their tour to South Africa in December-January if CSA appointed Lorgat as their chief executive.

According to Sport24, although India eventually agreed to a shortened tour after being assured that Lorgat would not be involved with matters related to India, the ICC has said that its ethics committee will hold an inquiry into allegations against Lorgat.

The report mentioned that relations between the two boards deteriorated as a result of reported BCCI anger at the way Lorgat had dealt with them during his ICC reign.

However, Lorgat said that although the situation is very distressing for him, he offered to be investigated because there was an allegation against him, although he added that he is not aware of whether this matter was raised or not in last month's ICC board meeting.

CSA has signed a MoUwith Pakistan for a short tour to fill the gap created by the shortened Indian series, the report added.
