The Karnataka State Cricket Association is most likely to start their season in July with some new implementations.
The Karnataka State Cricket Association is working with their tournament committee for a tentative plan and schedule for their season restart in July. Some of those which will be implemented are shorter formats, restructured tournaments, minimum travel, and some tweaked rules and regulations.
The association continues to finalize its standard operating procedures which will include some guidelines form their respective stockholders. Apart from that, their state players are also looking forward to their conditioning camp which is bound to start next week.
As per KSCA secretary Santosh Menon, ‘Life without sport is unimaginable. If everything falls in place, we are hopeful of an early July start. Registration of players will begin this week’.
With an upcoming registration for their players, the KSCA is looking forward to starting their season with the Group I and Group II league matches. However, the new implementations of the association will foresee some changes in the game as two-day league matches will be cut short to one-day contests instead.
Aside from that, the players will also be prevented from travelling from one place to another as the entire tournament will only be played among Bengaluru teams. With regards to this situation, Menon said, ‘The safety of players is our priority. We don't want them to travel to Bengaluru and stay in crowded dormitories. We'll ensure they play intra-zonal matches’.
The KSCA is the main organizer of the KSCA T20 tournament as well as some two-day match leagues. To further understand the formats of cricket including T20Is, check out Betwala.
