For the next virtual Apex council meeting of the BCCI, to be held on January 17, the items on agenda will be to discuss the fate of Ranji Trophy 2021. The last concluded edition of the Ranji Trophy, i.e the 2019-2020 season, was played from December 2019 to March 2020.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-21 season of the Ranji Trophy was postponed until January 1, 2021. However, the BCCI decided to go ahead with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy that is currently underway. The Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2020-21 will host 102 T20s from January 10 to January 31.

As a result, the Ranji Trophy will likely begin in February, before IPL 2021, and will be played across the same six venues and among the same teams as the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Meanwhile, another item of discussion on the agenda for BCCI will be to decide the schedule for juniors and women’s domestic cricket. According to Sports Today, BCCI is also in talks with other boards for women’s cricket international schedule.

Among further items on agenda is BCCI pitching the International Cricket Council (ICC) an extended window for the 2023-31 FTP (Future Tours Programme). The extended window is important for the BCCI since the IPL Governing Council approved 10 teams to be part of the IPL from the 2022 edition.

The premier T20 league will require a minimum of a 2-month window and the other boards need to agree to have their players released for the better part of the IPL.
