The BBC's live commentary of England's tour of India will go ahead as planned.

It had been feared the Test Match Special team would be denied access because of a demand for a reported £50,000 facility fee.

It has not been disclosed whether the BBC has agreed to pay more to cover the four-Test series.

"Test Match Special will broadcast England's cricket tour of India from the grounds after agreement was reached with all parties," a spokesman said.

The first Test begins in Ahmedabad on 15 November.

BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew leads the Test Match Special team and will be joined on commentary duty by Henry Blofeld, Simon Mann and Prakash Wakankar, with summarisers including TMS regulars Geoff Boycott and Vic Marks.
