The marquee domestic competition was set to commence in January but it was postponed due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in the country. Also, the tournament was not held last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, on Friday BCCI secretary Jay Shah said that the BCCI has decided that the upcoming season of the Ranji Trophy will be held in two phases.

“The Board has decided to conduct the Ranji Trophy this season in two phases. In the first phase, we plan to complete all matches of the league stage while the knockouts will be held in June. My team is working closely to mitigate any kind of health risk caused by the pandemic, while at the same time ensuring a highly competitive red-ball cricket contest,” Jay Shah said in an official statement.
