Toss up between Ranji and Vijay Hazare; NZ to tour before T20 World Cup | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: The Indian cricket board (BCCI) will be conducting either Ranji Trophy or the Vijay Hazare one-day tournament this season. On Sunday evening, the BCCI apex council had a virtual meeting where it was decided that the board could host only one more senior men’s domestic tournament. A call will be taken in the coming week.
“The board is keen to host the Ranji Trophy. There’s no time to organize both the tournaments. A decision will be taken in a few days’ time,” a senior BCCI official told TOI on Sunday. TOI has learnt that the state units are more keen on playing the Vijay Hazare tournament. The BCCI will maintain existing bubbles used for the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. However, the knockout phase of the Mushtaq Ali tournament will be played in Ahmedabad so that the revamped Motera stadium gets tested before hosting England for Tests and T20Is later in March.
NZ to visit India before T20 WC
The New Zealand team will tour India before the T20 World Cup scheduled for November. It is learnt that the tour will have more T20Is and fewer Test matches just as a preparation for the marquee event. Talks are also on to get South Africa for a short series to compensate for the series which was cancelled due to the pandemic in March last year. The Future Tours Programme (FTP) will be discussed in a later meeting.
Women’s cricket to start from Feb; talks on with SL, SA
The domestic season for women will start in February which will be followed by the resumption of India’s international cricket. It’s likely that India women will start off with a series against Sri Lanka. “BCCI is in talks with Sri Lanka and South Africa to resume international cricket for its women’s team. There were also discussions with England on the same,” the official said.
Rehiring of coaches at NCA
The National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru will have coaches hired to kick start BCCI’s programme of age group cricket. NCA didn’t renew contracts of 11 coaches at NCA in September. NCA director Rahul Dravid has been tasked to carry out the process for resumption of full-fledged activities which will also include zonal camps.
BCCI to host T20 WC irrespective of tax exemption
The board has also decided that it will not let the tax exemption from the central government, as demanded by the ICC, to come in the way off hosting the T20 World Cup later this year. “BCCI is in talks with the government. Even if the desired exemption is not granted, the board will go ahead with hosting the World Cup. It may give up an amount from its ICC revenue kitty,” the official claimed.
IPL SOP for England series
BCCI also decided that the same set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) will be implemented for the home series as it was used for the IPL in UAE in Oct-Nov. That means the teams will be in strict bio-bubbles.
