For the two successive seasons the premier domestic tournament in India, Ranji Trophy is said to be called off. BCCI had suspended the Ranji Trophy 2021-22 season on January 4, one day before the teams were scheduled to be starting their bio-bubble. As the reports claim that BCCI will cancel the Ranji Trophy due to the close window of IPL 2022, eight teams have requested BCCI to conduct the Ranji Trophy this season.

BCCI had stated that they will resume the Ranji trophy two weeks after the postponement. However, as more emphasis on the IPL 2022 is given, it is more likely to not happen. During the office-bearer’s meeting held last Tuesday, it was decided that BCCI will try to host the Ranji Trophy 2021-22 in the last week of February.

Although, the BCCI will need at least 75 days to conclude the Ranji Trophy 2021-22. Now, as the IPL 2022 is about to start from March 27, the bio-bubble will start from the third week of March. If IPL is shifted overseas, BCCI will only have the whole month of February and two weeks of March. Therefore, they will only have 45 days to complete the whole Ranji season. This seems quite impossible.
