India-Zimbabwe cricket series in July looks doubtful: Reports
India's upcoming tour to Zimbabwe is in jeopardy after it was emerged that Zimbabwe Cricket Board is facing trouble with the local broadcaster of the series, according to a report by Deccan Chronicle.

Quoting a reference of a report published in 'The Indian Express', it has been highlighted that the Zimbabwe cricket board will let know the Board of Control for Cricket in India about their inability to resolve the issue with Ten Sports. It has been further clarified that the Indian cricket board has apparently given the Zimbabwe cricket board a few more days to find a solution about the same.

It is a well-known fact, according to the story, that the BCCI share an uneasy relationship with Ten Sports, owned by Essel Group; the same group which was behind the now-defunct Indian Cricket League. Further the report says that it was earlier reported that the Subhash Chandra-owned group is now planning to flaunt a rival cricket league.

It has also been added that BCCI is facing difficulties to arrange visa on arrival for the Indian cricket team. According to the schedule planned by the BCCI, Zimbabwe is scheduled to host Team India for three ODIs and two T20s in July

Under the given situation, the BCCI should initiate all the necessary steps to resolve the issue as it will really become difficult for them to arrange any alternative keeping in view the fact that the series is scheduled only next month. Also it is the question of credibility of the BCCI.
