Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken the decision that it will not be conducting its Ranji Trophy tournament. The cricket board decided to go against organizing the premier domestic tournament due to COVID-19 pandemic. This will happen for the first time that the premier first-class domestic tournament will not be held in 87 years. The first edition of Ranji Trophy was played in 1934-35. BCCI will now host the Vijay Hazare Trophy, U-19 National One Day tournament for the Vinoo Mankad Trophy, and the Women\u2019s national 50-over tournament. It has been reported that majority of the State units were in favor of playing the Vijay Hazare trophy instead of the Ranji Trophy, thus BCCI decided against conducting the first-class tournament. Post-Covid lockdown, the first domestic tournament to take place was Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. The T20 tournament will end on January 31 with the final between Tamil Nadu and Punjab. Meanwhile, India is preparing to host its first international series following the Covid pandemic. England will face the home side in four Tests, five T20Is, and three ODIs.
