T20Is scrapped, curtailed tour on

Cricket South Africa's Haroon Lorgat out of the way as BCCI has its way

The two T20Is that were planned on Nov 21 (India vs South Africa, 1st T20 International) in Johannesburg and on Nov 24 (India vs South Africa, 2nd T20 International) in Cape Town were scrapped in the updated fixture for India’s shortened tour to South Africa confirmed in a joint statement from Cricket SA (CSA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The BCCI had claimed it never agreed to the proposed 12-match schedule (see below), which included three Tests, seven one-day internationals (ODI), and two Twenty20 matches.
Changed Schedule

After negotiations back and forth over the past few weeks, the two boards finally settled on a revised itinerary of two Tests and three ODIs. The two Test match venues in the new schedule approved by the BCCI - Johannesburg and Durban - are the only two venues where India had previously won Tests in South Africa. A Cricket South Africa insider, speaking to the Cape Times on condition of anonymity, revealed that the organisation had conceded all control for India's tour to South Africa to the Board of Control for Cricket in India. India's animosity stemmed from their soured relationship with CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat. Lorgat had been at loggerheads with BCCI during his stint as chief executive of ICC, resulting in BCCI advising CSA not to appoint Lorgat as CEO earlier this year. Although CSA went ahead, some of their affiliates are considering letting him go to save the board from financial ruin in the on-going spat with the BCCI.
