BCCI’S Apex Council meets today over tele-conference to decide the way forward on the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) & the Indian cricket in general. None of the BCCI’S meeting off late has been so crucial as today’s meeting is. Amid Covid19, the Indian cricket is completely stalled from the last 4 months. It would be expected from the BCCI’s Apex Council to find answers and way forward on some very difficult questions in these unprecedented times.
How, When and Where to organize IPL 2020 ?
How to start the training camps for the Indian Cricket ?
How to organize the postponed cricket tours & plan for future international cricket for India ?
How to start the Domestic cricket season ?
Even the most powerful and the richest cricket body of the world is struggling for answers to these questions in these times.
BCCI Apex Council Meeting LIVE Updates : IPL 2020 main point on agenda, check out all points
The blueprint to conduct the Indian Premier League (IPL) amidst rising cases of coronavirus will be topmost on the agenda of BCCI’s Apex Council. InsideSport.co had reported on 14th June that IPL 2020 and way forward on the Indian Cricket Team’s international calendar will be the two top most issues that will be discussed in the BCCI Apex Council Meeting.
Now the BCCI has also confirmed that IPL 2020 will be the main discussion point on the agenda in the BCCI APEX Council meeting on Friday.
“I don’t think we are still in a position to fix venues in situation which is so fluid. But the plans and the tentative window needs to be ready so that once ICC makes a formal announcement of T20 World Cup (scheduled for October-November) cancellation next week, we can proceed,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.
Among the 11-point agenda, which was listed down by InsideSport, is a discussion on domestic cricket season, which is likely to be a curtailed one considering the rapidly rising COVID-19 case load in the country.
