Srinagar, January 28: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah on Friday confirmed that Ranji Trophy will be held in two phases.

The league stage will be held before IPL while knockouts in June. The tournament was earlier postponed due to rising number of Covid-19 cases in India.

“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.“ Jay Shah said in a statement.

“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,” Shah added.

“Ranji Trophy is our most prestigious domestic competition, which has been providing Indian Cricket with an enviable talent pool every year. It is absolutely important that we take all necessary steps to safeguard the interest of this premier event,” he said.

While new dates are yet to be revealed, it is believed that the tournament will start from February 10.
