Schedule changed
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has written to the state associations stating that there will be a change in junior and women’s cricket schedule with the inclusion of six North-East states and Bihar.
The schedule needed a change after the BCCI’s Committee of Administrators ruled that the seven states— Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Bihar—will play the junior domestic tournaments barring Ranji Trophy.
Ratnakar Shetty, BCCI General Manager (Game Development), has sent out the mail, a copy of which is with PTI. As per the new schedule, the Under-19 Women’s T20 tournament, which was scheduled from February 1-6 (League), and February 11-17 (Super League) has been omitted, rather surprisingly.
They have now included Women’s U-19 League (November 1-9 ) for North-East States and Bihar in Dhanbad; Inter-State Women’s U-19 one-dayers and Super League (November 16-30) in Andhra Pradesh; Senior Women T20 Challenger Trophy (February 1-4), the venue for which is yet to be announced.
The list also has Women’s U-19 Inter-Zonal two-day matches from February 5-18 in Agartala; Women’s U-23 T20 League from March 17-23 and Super League from March 27-April 2.
In junior men’s cricket, the additions will be U-23 One- day tournament for NE and Bihar in Ranchi; U-23 one-day tournament in Kanpur; Vijay Merchant Trophy (U-16) for NE States and Bihar in Shillong; while West Zone will host the all-India knock-out draw of Vijay Merchant Trophy.
