Last year, India’s domestic cricket was completely spoiled by the corona virus. This forced the Cricket Control Board of India (BCCI) to cancel the first-class domestic tournament Ranji Trophy for the first time in its 87-year history. But this time the situation is not as usual. As the second IPL 2021 and T20 World Cup in India will be moved to the UAE at the end of this year, the board is planning to start the 2021-22 domestic season from October.

According to the board, if there is a decrease in corona cases this year, the board will host a total of 1971 home matches between October 1, 2021 and April 1, 2022. On the other hand, if the situation does not improve, 1487 domestic matches will be played during this period. The men’s event will be hosted by the Ranji Trophy, Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy and CK Naidu Trophy. At the same time, all four senior level tournaments will be held in women’s cricket. In addition, three under-19s, two under-23s and one under-19 tournament will also be held.

Due to Kovid-19, only the Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy could be hosted last year. After this, as the situation changed, the board won accolades by successfully hosting a series against England in all three formats this year. But once this corona struck the whole country again, the board had to postpone the IPL 2021 midway.
