Johannesburg: Cricket South Africa (CSA) did not act unilaterally when it announced the schedule for an extended tour by India later this year that is now under threat of being shortened by the BCCI, according to South African Cricketers' Association (SACA).

"My understanding is that CSA went through the same process of agreeing the India tour schedule as they always do with the BCCI," SACA chief executive Tony Irish said.

"The Boards engaged over a period; there were a number of revisions to the schedule and they got it to a final version, which CSA understood it could then release. It was not a case of CSA simply acting unilaterally," Irish was quoted as saying by daily 'Business Day'.
