“We have to decide the way forward [for domestic cricket],” Azharuddin, who played 99 Tests, 334 ODIs in the 80s and 90s. “At this stage, I don’t have the agenda of the meeting and I cannot say anything. But one thing I am sure about is we have the best of domestic cricketers’ interest in mind. The players’ interest is always a top priority.”
“We have to make sure that domestic cricket gets going. As you know, last year we didn’t have a full domestic season, understandably for reasons well known to the world. We have to see how the situation pans out in the course of time,” Azharuddin, who played 229 first-class games and 432 List A matches, said.
Organizing Domestic Events For Senior Teams
Last year, the BCCI was only able to organize white ball domestic events for senior teams due to the pandemic, which prevented the Ranji Trophy from being contested. The BCCI has created a thorough schedule for domestic cricket this year, with plans to begin as early as September.
