Interim Board of Control for Cricket in India president Jagmohan Dalmiya has confirmed that India's tour of South Africa later this year will go ahead. There had been speculation that the tour would be scrapped after the Board invited West Indies to tour India in November.

"The tour is on," Dalmiya told NDTV.

At the BCCI's working committee meeting in Kolkata on Sunday, the tour of South Africa was put on hold. India were slated to tour the Rainbow Nation for two Twenty20s, seven ODIs and three Tests starting November 21, 2013.
