BCCI Calls Meeting to Discuss 2021-22 Domestic Season
While the white-ball leagues took place in the 2020-21 season, the Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy couldn’t be held.
The Indian cricket board has called for a Special General Meeting on 29 May to consider the possibility of holding a full-fledged domestic season in 2021-22 even as the country reels under the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Notice is hereby given for a Special General Meeting of the BCCI which will be held on 29 May, 2021 virtually to transact the following business: Discussion on the upcoming cricket season in view of the pandemic situation prevailing in India," Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah said in a note addressed to the state cricket associations.
The BCCI is mulling starting the domestic season from September this year after the longer format tournaments couldn’t transpire last season. While the limited-overs events, the Vijay Hazare one-dayers and the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20s, took place in the 2020-21 season, the Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy couldn't be accommodated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fresh season may kick off with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20s, which can also serve as a warm-up for the T20 World Cup.
