BCCI Suspends All Age-group Tournaments Due to Rise in Active Covid Cases in the Country

India's domestic season started in January 2021 with the board organising the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy. In addition, the Women's Senior One Day Trophy is also underway at various venues.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah In a letter to the state associations has informed that all age-group domestic competitions have been suspended on account of rising active Covid-19 cases in the country.

“While our endeavour was to get in as many matches as was practicable across different age groups in the season, prevailing circumstances have now forced us to suspend all age-group tournaments. This is on account of the fact that active COVID cases are on the rise and organising tournaments requires intercity travel, strict quarantine measures and the creation and maintenance of bio-secure bubbles for the participants,” said Shah in a letter as reported by ANI.

India’s domestic season started in January 2021 with the board organising the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy. In addition, the Women’s Senior One Day Trophy is also underway at various venues.

Shah also mentioned that with board exams around the corner, the focus for the young athletes should be solely on the examinations.

“Moreover, the situation is presently not conducive in some states. Considering the fact that the 10th and 12th board examinations are also around the corner across India, it is prudent that our young athletes have the opportunity to prepare and focus on these crucial examinations,” he added in the letter
