The Bigger Picture
How the COVID-19 Pandemic affected the Indian Cricket Schedule this year?
The Indian cricket schedule has not been an exception as the pandemic this year has affected all sporting events across the world. We have literally spent three to four month without any cricket at all. All Indian series scheduled during March-August have either been cancelled or postponed.
The IPL 2020 which was to begin in April also got postponed till October now. While the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup now also postponed, we are hopeful that BCCI may get benefit from the open window during October and November window to schedule the Indian Premier League.
BCCI has already confirmed that IPL will be taken to UAE and its a matter of few days now to confirm exactly when will we witness the Indian players on ground. The Indian cricket fans are dying to see IPL at the local venues but the BCCI think its not safe manage at this time.
What’s next for the Indian Team?
The big question is not hard to answer anymore since we have cricket resumed in multiple countries now. England is hosting couple of countries under bio-secure environment. Australia and UAE are also considered safe heavens right now.
India tour to Australia may get a green signal for the T20, ODI and Test series. The tour timing, however, is creating doubts. Since the T20 World Cup has been postponed, it doesn’t make sense for the Indian team to schedule only 3 T20 matches during October and then re-visit later in December & January.
For now, it’s a green signal for the IPL to go ahead. The complete schedule will be announced by BCCI once they reach an agreement with UAE authorities for hosting rights.
Busy Season ahead
The Indian players have a busy season ahead since we have various ICC events and T20 leagues coming up. Major events that will be part of the India Cricket Schedule in the coming season include ICC T20 World Cup 2021 & 2022, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Asia Cup 2021, IPL 2020 & 2021 and few others.
