New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is still not committed to compensating for the loss in income of domestic cricketers due to Corona not having other domestic tournaments including Premier Ranji. A BCCI official said, “We can think that way.” But it also depends on what state cricket associations think. We need to talk to state bodies about this.
Difficult to decide who will play this year
An official of the state cricket body said that if the BCCI decides to pay compensation, the biggest challenge for the association would be to find players who could play. An official of the state association said the state associations will have to give the list of players who played last year and who will have played this year. It can be difficult to decide who will play this year.
Domestic tournaments can be held in September
The BCCI had kept the compensation option open, though not committed to it. The BCCI’s top council decided last month to have September as a possible month to start the domestic session of 2021-22.
