BCCI To Review The Rescheduling Of Cancelled Ranji Trophy Games
The tournament committee of BCCI has decided to review the two rescheduled Ranji Trophy games after receiving official protests from MCA and TNCA. The two Ranji Trophy games between Bengal and Gujarat, Hyderabad and Tripura were cancelled due to excessive fog and smog in Delhi. The umpires waited for the conditions to get better on day one but finally decided to cancel the game after tea break on day 2.
BCCI at that time, instead of cancelling the games, decided to reschedule the two contests. The rescheduled games are scheduled to be played from December 15 but now looks like BCCI will review the decision whether to organise the games or not as BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke has himself spoken about the matter, “Some members raised the issue in the meeting and in response to complaints received from members, our senior tournament committee will review the decision,” Shirk told the Indian Express.
“We are going to have a full, detailed inquiry of this. The whole problem has come because the match referees (P Ranganathan for the Gujarat-Bengal game and Sanjay Sharma for the match between Hyderabad and Tripura) didn’t wait to go into day three and day four. We are going to convene a meeting of the senior tournament committee, which is responsible for looking into all such things. And once we hear from the persons concerned, we will take an appropriate decision on the matter. We are going to call the complainants also, who made the allegations,” he added.
With the last round of Ranji Trophy starting from December 7, BCCI has to take a decision regarding this before the start o the last round as this will help those four teams to tighten up the screws and play accordingly as if the rescheduled games are cancelled, then they will not have a luxury of playing one more game and they have to play accordingly and set up the equation of how to qualify for the knockouts.
