The BCCI has delayed the Ranji Trophy competition for the ongoing domestic season because of sharp increase in Covid-19 cases around the country. The CK Nayudu Trophy and the senior Women’s T20 League won’t be held all things considered.
The Ranji Trophy was not held last season because of Covid-19 yet was set to initiate this month. The competition was planned to be held in six urban areas – Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Trivandrum.
The CK Nayudu Trophy should start this month though the Women’s association was booked to begin in February. The BCCI had effectively led the Syed Mushtag Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy currently this season before the new spike in cases.
“BCCI would rather not compromise the wellbeing of the players, support staff, match authorities and different members included and thus, has chosen to require the three competitions to be postponed till additional notification. The BCCI will keep on surveying the circumstance and accept an approach the beginning of the competitions as needs be,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said in a release.
