Fresh doubt over the India-Bangladesh one off Test

By Sahil Mehan -


After Supreme Court's decision to sack Anurag Thakur from BCCI's President post, latest development from Hyderabad shocked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The Hyderabad Cricket Association on 8th January expressed inability to organize a Test match against Bangladesh, which is scheduled to start on February 8 to 12 at the Uppal ground. 

Hyderabad Cricket Association in their report to BCCI cited lack of funds as a reason for withdrawing from scheduled Test match.

While Hyderabad is not the only association facing problems due to lack of funds, as TNCA (Tamil Nadu Cricket Association) has also refused to host two under-19 Test matches between India and England at Chennai that was scheduled from February 13 to 16 and from February 21 to 24. The BCCI had scheduled five ODI matches against England under-19 in Mumbai and two four-day games in Chennai.

The official letter from TNCA cited "At the outset we thank you for allotting the India - England Under 19 matches at Chennai between 13th and 16th February and 21st to 24th February 2017. However, we regret to inform you that we are unable to host the matches at Chennai due to various domestic programs scheduled during the period."
