However, as per a Times of India report, the board has determined to not organise Duleep Trophy, Deodhar Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy and CK Nayudu U-23 event. The board needs to host the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 event this yr itself.
While the Ranji Trophy is probably going to return to its preliminary codecs for this season by which groups shall be divided into 5 zones, geographically – i.e. East, West, North, South, and Central zones. The preliminary matches shall be performed throughout the zones to find out a winner, following which the 5 particular person zone winners will compete in a knockout event to determine the ultimate winner, the report claimed.
A senior BCCI official informed PTI, “There is no point in chalking up a calendar without knowing what will be the COVID situation in December-January, 2021. Obviously, you can take it for granted that the Duleep Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy will be scrapped from the men’s itinerary.”
BCCI is worried that first-class gamers might lose as much as Rs eight to 10 lakh because of the curtailed home season. Ahmedabad is the one possibility for camp. Contrary to studies that there could possibly be a number of choices for India’s coaching camp, the official stated that solely Ahmedabad is being thought-about in the meanwhile on the newly constructed GCA facility in Motera (India’s greatest cricket stadium).
“Motera Stadium is a state of the art stadium that has 60 residential rooms inside the facility which will be very convenient to create bio-bubble for players and support staff. Let me tell you, Dubai was not even discussed as a training venue for the India team. Dharamsala is the second option,” he stated.
