The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

NEW ZEALAND are pre­par­ing for the third test against India as sched­uled de­spite a lo­cal me­dia re­port that the re­main­der of the tour has been can­celled by the In­dian cricket board due to fi­nan­cial prob­lems. The In­dian Ex­press news­pa­per quoted an un­named of­fi­cial from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as say­ing the board’s bank ac­counts had been frozen af­ter a rec­om­men­da­tion by the Lodha Com­mit­tee, a court-ap­pointed panel set up to look into its op­er­a­tions. “We have no op­tion other than to call off the India-New Zealand se­ries as our banks have de­cided to freeze BCCI ac­counts,” the paper quoted the of­fi­cial as say­ing. “We don’t want India to be hu­mil­i­ated in front of the world. How can we func­tion, how can we hold any games now? Who will make the pay­ment? Freez­ing a bank ac­count is no joke. An in­ter­na­tional team is here, and there is so much at stake.”
