The Duleep Trophy scraped off the calendar

The Duleep Trophy scraped off the calendar

As the schedule for the upcoming domestic season was chalked out by the BCCI India, the duleep trophy was found to have been deleted from the calendar for the season 2015-16. One of BCCI India top executive member remarked that this amendment has been made only for one year.

The Duleep trophy has been entirely chopped off or removed.  It has just been translated to the start of the next season of domestic cricket schedule.  Dr.M.V Sridhar who is the general manager of the cricket operations remarked that the schedule is chalked down by considering the India’s international tours and matches. Just to prevent the overlapping of the duleep trophy matches with the t-20 world cup, this amendment has been brought down and the duleep trophy has been postponed to the start of the next session.  For the season opening which takes place October, the duleep trophy has served its purpose well. But only to prevent the overlapping and clash of the two, the duleep trophy and the t-20 world cup, it has been chopped out of the calendar for the domestic session.

It is a matter of fact that the duleep trophy has been only postponed or cancelled, and more preference has been given to one day matches and the t-2o series which eventually means that the duleep trophy has lost its sine over a period of time. The budding crickets tend to display more of their talent and performance in such matches as compared to the duleep trophy. They are playing internationally and overseas almost every time and for that matter, Duleep trophy lies somewhere below in ranking. This is not the first time when a domestic tournament has been scrapped off the calendar by the BCCI. Before this, many domestic tournaments have been scrapped out the calendar and preference has been given to one day international or to other such matches for that matter.

The BCCI remarked that there is a reason behind such scraping of the domestic tournaments. They ensured that all the players will get equal chances and opportunities to showcase their talents n the cricketing field and that the calendar has been so chalked out that it provides ample opportunities to all the budding artists. Such matches will also increase the chance of many players to get selected in the national’s team. The amendments are made only for the over-all benefit of all the players and for their good will.
