On January 4, the BCCI had postponed the Ranji Trophy due to rising COVID-19 cases in the country.
The Ranji Trophy and Col CK Nayudu Trophy were scheduled to begin in January this year. Last season as well, Ranji Trophy was not held due to the Covid pandemic.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will get underway in March end and the tournament will get over in May, BCCI secretary Jay Shah had earlier confirmed. So, it remains to be seen how the board goes about staging the Ranji Trophy this season or will it be postponed again.
