BCCI confirms postponement of Ranji Trophy

The Col C K Nayudu Trophy & Senior Women’s T20 League for 2021-22 season have also been postponed along with the Ranji Trophy

The BCCI has officially confirmed that the 2021/22 season of the Ranji Trophy, that was initially scheduled to commence on January 13, has been indefinitely postponed following the spike in Covid cases in the country. Earlier today, board treasurer Arun Dhumal told Cricket.com that the BCCI was pondering postponing the competition, and now the board has officially confirmed that the domestic red-ball competition will not commence later this month as originally scheduled.

Along with the Ranji Trophy, the Col C K Nayudu Trophy & Senior Women’s T20 League have also been postponed.

“BCCI does not want to compromise the safety of the players, support staff, match officials and other participants involved and hence, has decided to put the three tournaments on hold till further notice. The BCCI will continue to assess the situation and take a call on the start of the tournaments accordingly,” the board said in a release.

“BCCI thanks and continues to appreciate the efforts of the healthcare workers, state associations, players, support staff, match officials and all the service providers who put their best foot forward to host more than 700 matches across 11 tournaments in the current 2021-22 domestic season.”

The postponement of the Ranji Trophy means that the country will go two full years without hosting a single senior red-ball domestic competition.
