I sincerely hope that all the cricketers of acc and Asian region under your leadership will go to new heights. My best wishes are with you to make your term successful.
Earlier, Arun Dhumal informed that the BCCI is making all efforts to get IPL in India and he hopes it will be possible. He made it clear that the BCCI is not even thinking about getting IPL in any other country.
On Saturday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to hold the Vijay Hazare Trophy after the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, which is yet to take a major decision on domestic cricket.
At the same time, it has been decided that Ranji Trophy will not be held for the first time in 87 years. With the Vijay Hazare Trophy of 50 overs and the India-England series, the BCCI would now organize the women’s senior ODI trophy and the Vinu Mankad ODI trophy in under-19 cricket.
BCCI secretary Jai Shah in his letter to the state associations has written that the decision has been taken due to feedback from state associations and coronavirus.
