BCCI postpones Ranji Trophy, other tournaments amid COVID-19 wave

New Delhi: India’s domestic cricket schedule was thrown into chaos on Tuesday when the BCCI decided to postpone major tournaments including the Ranji Trophy and the Col CK Naidu Trophy due to an increase in COVID-19 cases across the country.

With as many as six members of the Bengali contingent, including five players who tested positive, along with a few Mumbai players, it was inevitable that the blue riband tournament that started on January 13 had to be suspended indefinitely.
