India suffered big defeats in Cape Town and Centurion to lose the series.

The inconsequential third and final Test starts in Johannesburg tomorrow.

"We will review the performance after getting the full report from the team manager. Nothing can be done now as the players and officials are in South Africa," said a BCCI official who was present in the CoA meeting that took place here today.

CoA chief Vinod Rai, member Diana Edulji and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri were part of the meeting.

None of the BCCI office-bearers including acting president CK Khanna and acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary were called for the meeting.

Virat Kohli-led India has received severe flak from all quarters following the series loss.

Some former India players felt the team was under- prepared, going into the first Test without a warm-up match, while someone like Harbhajan Singh said hosting Sri Lanka before the South Africa tour was not the best thing to do.

In fact, India coach Ravi Shastri himself admitted that 10 more days of preparation would have made a difference in the team's preparation.

In the meeting, CoA ratified the decisions taken by the IPL Governing Council yesterday. The IPL GC announced the dates of IPL-11, from April 7 to May 27, and accepted broadcaster's request of changing the match timings from 8 pm to 7 pm, and 4 pm to 5.30 pm.

The next CoA meeting is expected to take place after the Supreme Court hearing on 29 January.
