Second, a 10-member committee was formed to compensate for the loss caused to the players due to non-availability of Ranji due to Corona.
In fact, in the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting on June 1 this month, it was decided that between 2023 and 2031, the ICC will organize a tournament every year. Which includes T20 World Cup, ODI World Cup, Champions Trophy. At the same time, 14 teams will participate in the 50-over World Cup. Whereas the number of teams in the T20 World Cup will be increased from 16 to 20.
Hosting T20 World Cup, Champions Trophy and One Day World Cup
In such a situation, BCCI will bid to host three tournaments between 2024 and 2031. Sources told the news agency that the BCCI will stake claim to host the 2025 Champions Trophy, the T20 World Cup to be held in 2028 and the ODI World Cup to be held in 2031. At the same time, the T20 World Cup in October this year and the ODI World Cup in 2023 is also to be held in India.
Committee constituted for compensation of Ranji players
Ranji Trophy was not organized this year due to Corona. Although this year Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy and ODI Vijay Hazare Trophy were organized. While the four-day Ranji Trophy was not organized. For T20 Trophy and Vijay Haraje Trophy, players get Rs 35,000 per match. On the other hand, Rs 1.40 lakh is available for a Ranji match. The livelihood of many players runs on the fees of these matches.
Players earn 20 lakhs from domestic tournaments of all three formats
Even if these players do not play IPL and play in all three formats for their state team, then they earn 20 lakh rupees annually. In such a situation, due to the absence of Ranji Trophy, many players had suffered financial loss. In view of this, a 10-member committee has been constituted. In which apart from one member from all the zones, there will be BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah.
