Launch between Ranji and Vijay Hazare; New Zealand on tour ahead of T20 World Cup | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: The Indian Cricket Council (BCCI) will be running either the Ranji Trophy or the Vijay Hazare One Day Tournament this season. On Sunday evening, the BCCI Supreme Council held a virtual meeting in which it was decided that the board could only host one more senior men’s national tournament. A call will be taken in the coming week.
“The board is looking forward to hosting the Ranji Trophy. There is no time to organize the two tournaments. A decision will be made in a few days,” a senior BCCI official told TOI on Sunday. YOU have learned that state units are more eager to play the Vijay Hazare tournament. BCCI will maintain the existing bubbles used for the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. However, the knockout stage of the Mushtaq Ali tournament will take place in Ahmedabad so that the renovated Motera stadium can be tested before hosting England for testing and T20Is later in March.
New Zealand to visit India ahead of T20 WC

Women’s cricket will start from February; talks with SL, SA
The national season for women will begin in February, which will be followed by the resumption of Indian international cricket. It is likely that Indian women will start with a streak against Sri Lanka. “BCCI are in talks with Sri Lanka and South Africa to take over international cricket for their women’s team. Discussions have also taken place with England on the same subject,” the official said.
Rehire coaches at NCA
The National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru will have coaches hired to start the BCCI age group cricket program. NCA did not renew the contracts of 11 coaches at NCA in September. NCA Director Rahul Dravid has been tasked with carrying out the process of resuming full-fledged activities which will also include the zone camps.
BCCI will host WC T20 regardless of tax exemption
The board also decided not to let the central government’s tax exemption, as required by the ICC, prevent it from hosting the T20 World Cup later this year. “The BCCI is in talks with the government. Even if the desired exemption is not granted, the board of directors will continue to host the World Cup. It could forgo an amount from its ICC revenue fund,” the manager said.
IPL SOP for the England series
The BCCI also decided that the same set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) would be implemented for the domestic series as it was used for the IPL in the UAE from October to November. This means that the teams will be in strict bio-bubbles.
