The Control Board for Cricket in India ( BCCI) has put on hold plans to initiate skill-based training camps for centrally contracted players.
The decision comes after the extension of the national lockdown by the BJP-led government.
In particular, as set out in the new guidelines for this phase of the lockdown on Sunday, sports complexes and stadiums can be re-opened without spectators.
“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,” BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal said in a press release.
Dhumal said players and personnel health is of utmost importance and won’t be compromised.
He also added that the BCCI would not rush into any decision.
“The Board reiterates the safety and well-being of its athletes and support staff is paramount and will not rush to any decision that might hinder India’s efforts to contain the spread of the virus,” he said.
