1 England The BCCI’s apex committee will meet online in October to discuss Australia’s upcoming tour of Australia and the Indian series against England, along with local season schedules. Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly said the home series against England would continue in the country and the board would do its utmost to ensure that domestic matches would be resumed even after the COVID-1 situation.
The burden in the Covid-1 case is close to 70 lakhs and the death toll has gone beyond 1 lakhs.
England will tour India from January to March next year to play five Tests, three ODIs and three T20I matches.
The United Arab Emirates is currently hosting the Indian Premier League (IPL) for a home series against England against the backdrop of rising cowardice cases in India.
However, if India are able to host the England team, Mumbai could be a great option to create a bubble with three international venues – Wankhede Stadium, Cricket Club of India and DY Patil Stadium.
The board also wants to explore state-of-the-art infrastructure at the new Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad.
As far as the domestic circuit is concerned, the BCCI had initially planned to start with the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on November 1, but the post-epidemic situation has raised doubts.
