The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chose to postpone the 2021-22 Indian domestic cricket events for safety reasons after the Covid-19 pandemic had disastrous results owing to the second wave. The BCCI has issued a new schedule for the Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy, and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy at neutral venues, as the situation in the country has stabilised. All of the tournaments will be held at neutral locations for the first time since the 2016-17 season.
It has been decided that each team squad in all of the domestic tournaments listed can have a maximum of 30 members, with 10 of those being support staff. In addition, the 2018 domestic season will feature six distinct group-stage matches for men and women at various venues for each competition.
In addition, each group’s home team will be forced to play at a different location. Aside from the match schedule, all of the aforementioned competitions specify tournament dates. The revamped domestic calendar has been assigned to nearly 20 state cricket bodies.
