There has been some talk of Sri Lanka offering to stage the tour on India’s behalf, if coronavirus situation in India, at the time warrants.

Ganguly also confirmed that the next IPL will be held on schedule in April, next year in India. However, there were no concrete details given on Indian women’s next bilateral series, or when the domestic season will begin.

“The tours of the senior Indian women’s teams are also under discussion and more details will be shared shortly,” he wrote.

“All Members will be duly informed about the future course of action and suggestions will be taken before we resume domestic cricket. We are hopeful that the Covid-19 situation will improve over the next few months and we will be able to start domestic cricket in a safe and healthy environment.”
