New Delhi Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will start the domestic season with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. The tournament will be held from January 10 to January 1 in six different states by creating a bio-bubble (a safe environment designed for protection against corona). Teams participating in the competition will have to report to their hub (bio-bubble center) on January 2.
In a letter to state unions, BCCI secretary Jai Shah asked Mushtaq Ali to start the domestic session. However, the Ranji Trophy has not been considered yet. Due to the corona virus, the BCCI had to reschedule its domestic season schedule.
“Based on the suggestions you have received, I would like to tell you that the BCCI is going to start the 2020-21 domestic season with the T20 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy,” Shah wrote in an e-mail. All teams must arrive at their hub on January 2. The tournament will start on January 10 and the final will be played on January 1.
But Shah said the decision on the Ranji Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy would be taken after the Mushtaq Ali Trophy ended against the group stage. The BCCI will also seek suggestions from member associations to organize both these tournaments. Member associations are requested to complete their preparations for the tournament and then make all arrangements in advance.
The Mushtaq Ali Trophy is being held for the first time as the BCCI wants to hold a big auction for the next IPL in February, with more players in attendance. The BCCI is also considering adding one or two teams to the next IPL. As far as other tournaments are concerned, the next tournament can be held in place of Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy, as it can also be held in a short time like Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
