The CK Nayudu Trophy for U-25 cricketers and the women’s seniors T20 event had to be postponed last month due to rising cases of Covid-19.
The Ranji Trophy was also postponed, but as the number of cases fell, the BCCI decided to organize the first national event from February 17. The first round was completed on Sunday.
The 14-point agenda for the meeting includes organizing these two national events as the COVID-19 situation improves across the country.
Also on the agenda, owned by PTI, is the formation of the LOC for the 2023 ODI World Championship. The T20 World Championship could not be held in India last year due to the pandemic, but the BCCI looks forward to hosting one next year to host another major ICC event.
The appointment of GM – Game Development is also finalized after Dhiraj Malhotra left the position last month.
Education start-up Byju’s contract to sponsor the Indian cricket team ends on March 31 and there will be discussion about that too. Byju replaced Oppo as team sponsor in July 2019.
Allocation for the five-game T20 series against South Africa in June will also be decided.
