The Pakistan cricket team left for England on Sunday for a three-match Test series as well as a three-match T20I series. While cricket is slowly returning back to normalcy, the Indian cricket fans will still have to wait for a while as the Indian cricket team is unlikely to start training before August.
As reported by ABP news, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly opined that Team India camp won’t start before August.
In the last few weeks, several Indian cricketers took to social media to post photographs from the ground after staying for more than three months in lockdown. India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma took to social media to write: “Good to be back on the park getting some work done felt like myself after a long time.”
The BCCI is trying hard to host the Indian Premier League (IPL) at some point later this year. While the Indian board is eyeing the September-November window, a lot depends on the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) final call over the future of 2020 World T20 – which was scheduled to be held in Australia from October 18.
Pakistan is looking to host the Asia Cup in either Sri Lanka or UAE from September-October, as well as the remaining matches of Pakistan Super League (PSL) in November. To avoid any clash, the BCCI has written to the PCB asking them to postpone PSL matches for next year.
