The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has stated on Tuesday that they are yet to take a decision on the final Test between India and England to be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Earlier, reports emerged that the Indian board is considering to move the match away from the city following the death of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram after which a seven-day mourning has been announced in the state.

However, BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke told a news conference that the board is closely monitoring the situation in Tamil Nadu with inputs from Tamil Nadu Cricket Association and they have not come to any decision on shifting the game out of the city.

"An unfortunate incident has taken place in Chennai, but the BCCI is making clear that no decision has been taken regarding Chennai test," said Shirke.

"We're keeping a close watch on the situation and taking inputs from the local association about sentiments of the people. We will act accordingly."

The fourth Test between India and England will be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with the visitors trailing by 2-0 after defeats in the second and third game.
