BCCI not to organise training camps for contracted players now despite Covid relaxations

Mumbai/IBNS: The Indian cricket board has said it will not rush to organise training camps for contracted players despite the relaxations permitted by the central government in the fourth phase of anti-Covid-19 lockdown which began on Monday.

The central government on Sunday announced that sports complexes and stadiums devoid of spectators will be allowed to open during the lockdown 4.0 which is due to end on Jun 1. 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said it won't rush to any decision which may "jeopardize" India's effort to stem the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.

BCCI treasurer Arun Singh Dhumal said in a statement, "Taking into the account the restrictions on air travel and movement of people till May 31, the BCCI will wait further before organizing a skill-based training camp for its contracted players.

The Board reiterates that the safety and well-being of its athletes and support staff is paramount and will not rush into any decision that can hamper or jeopardize India’s efforts in containing the spread of the virus."

However, the cricket board has said it will chalk out a programme with the state associations for skill-based training at a local level.

The statement read, "....the BCCI will study guidelines at the state level and will work in sync with State Cricket Associations to chalk out a programme for skill-based training at a local level." 

BCCI's major cricket tournament Indian Premier League (IPL) was earlier postponed for an indefinite period of time due to the lockdown which began on Mar 24 midnight but later was extended thrice.
