BCCI shifts India A games from Belgaum to Bengaluru

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday shifted India A's four-day games with South Africa A from Belgaum to Bengaluru, citing high probability of rains.
"The BCCI in accordance with KSCA (Karnataka State Cricket Association) has reached a consensus that the games which were initially meant to be held in Belgaum will now be played in Bengaluru citing high probability of rains in Belgaum," a statement said.
