BCCI Domestic Cricket

The BCCI announced a domestic cricket overhaul for the 2024-25 season, prioritizing red-ball cricket, national selector involvement, and player well-being.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is set to revamp the domestic cricket circuit for the upcoming 2024–25 season, based on recommendations made by Secretary Jay Shah. The season will begin with red-ball tournaments, prioritising the longer format. White-ball tournaments, like the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy, will be played later.

Previously chosen by zonal committees, squads for the Duleep Trophy will now be selected by national selectors, potentially leading to a more consistent selection process. Similar to the Duleep Trophy, national selectors will choose teams for all women’s inter-zonal one-day, T20, and multi-day tournaments. A proposal for matches to be spaced further apart to address player concerns about fatigue was also pitched. Earlier, Shardul Thakur voiced this concern, which will probably be looked after.

A proposal for the elimination of the toss from U-23 Col CK Nayudu Trophy was pitched too, with the visiting team having the choice to bat or bowl first. Additionally, a new points system might be implemented to encourage well-rounded performances, awarding points for both batting and bowling in the first inning, along with points for the lead or win. This system will be reviewed at the end of the season for its effectiveness and may be implemented in the Ranji Trophy in the future.

“This includes awarding points for batting and bowling performances in the first innings, in addition to points for the first innings lead or outright win. A review will be conducted at the end of the season to assess the effectiveness of the new points system, with a decision on whether to implement it in the Ranji Trophy for the following season,” read the proposal.

Considering the disruptions caused by fog and extreme weather in the north during the 2023-24 season, an upcoming schedule has been proposed to minimize the impact of such conditions. This may result in minimal cricket activity in the northern region during the harshest winter months.
