Innovative moves from BCCI to revamp the structure of domestic cricket

Meanwhile, what might attract the eyeballs will be the new decisions taken by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Interestingly, the teams for all the women’s tournaments in Indian domestic cricket for the upcoming season will be picked by the national selectors.

Besides that, the Board has also come up with an innovative ‘toss elimination’ move, it means that there will not be any kind of toss in the CK Nayudu Trophy as the visiting team will be given the privilege to decide what to do first, batting or bowling.

Apart from this move, the points system has also been revamped for the CK Nayudu Trophy, it will include the distribution of points for brilliant batting and bowling performances in the first innings. The board is also looking ahead to adopt the same in the Ranji Trophy if it works in the CK Nayudu Trophy.
