The BCCI will not be conducting its premier first-class domestic tournament Ranji Trophy for the first time in 87 years as it has opted for the Vijay Hazare Trophy as per the wishes of majority of the State units.
The BCCI will also host the U-19 National One Day tournament for the Vinoo Mankad Trophy and the Women’s national 50-over tournament as per a letter sent by BCCI secretary Jay Shah to the State units.
It is understood that BCCI will probably follow the same groupings and bio-bubble for the Hazare Trophy that will start next month.
The BCCI during its AGM had decided that players will be compensated in case there is a truncated season and it is expected that the board will devise a mechanism by which the premier domestic cricketers of the country are taken care of financially.
The government has listed a bill that will prohibit “all private cryptocurrencies” in India and provide a framework for creation of an official digital currency to be issued by the Reserve Bank of India.
The RBI is already exploring the possibility of issuing a digital version of the rupee that could eventually come as the country's central bank digital currency (CBDC) — based on the technological background of cryptocurrencies.
This is notably not the first time that the government has shown interest in banning cryptocurrencies in the country. In April 2018, the RBI had effectively banned cryptocurrency transactions via banks and e-wallets.
That move was also backed by the Supreme Court initially, though it later quashed the circular issued by the central bank.
