Why BCCI cancelled the camp of team India?


camp that was  talked about by BCCI has been cancelled . What can  be the reason behind this ?

The camp which is in Ahemdabad for the contracted players had been made up or not, nothing can be said . BCCI had said in the epic meeting that he will organize a camp for the contracted player, he has not ruled out yet . The franchise has to give 4 weeks to the players or not to practice . Whoever has not seen bat and ball for so many days . He should get so much time  . BCCI did not announce that he has set up Camp 6 August , on 3 August or 10 August, and for this, the franchise will not be sitting .  And the franchise is saying that there is no information about what will happen to the IPL. The franchise says I take my team . He would get his player to practice the net and get the Quarantine done . Will get 4 more practice matches  and it has more chances.

But in the meeting with the Governing council on August 2, many things will be cleared . This is the case, it has been becoming confusing for the last 1 ,2 months. The thing is that the official announcement of the series of T20 was delayed. And the second thing is that BCCI’s secretory which is Jai Shankar’s tenure is over in June . And Sourav Ganguly’s remarks ended on July 27 officially .

There will be clarity in the meeting that will be held on August 2  .IPL is not so easy to get done . Is it proactive or hyperactive? It has to be seen . There is Governing Council meeting is followed by another meeting which will be held with the franchise and after this with broadcaster .This is extraordinary circumstances. This is not the kind of shift that was played in 2004 and 2019.The world is stuck here and a lot of simmering issues are happening. Governing Council . He should have taken the decision on IPL first. Then send it to BCCI.

If all this is removed, chances are very less at the camp in Ahmedabad.


The IPL that will happen this year is not only big but it will be huge for the whole world. Whom the whole world will celebrate In IPL. There be not only discussion of viewership but also the return of cricket. Whom we call Galaxy Of Stars . Today officially UAE has agreed that will organize Indian Premier League this also . The kind of situation in India and all over the world.  I P L will bring a very positive impact for people . But this year may not see Crowed for IPL . Nothing can be said can be seen . It is all about on UAE government how much crowed they allow in Indian Premier League match. This is going to be the biggest event in the entire cricket history . UAE made half the preparations. Hotels is also been booking .   
This time the I P L will be the best, the reason behind this is not cricket. England and West Indies matches were seen, the reason behind this is not a cricket.The reason behind this is that we have not done anything in the past 4 months.There was a time when there were so many good matches but nobody would have seen that match.Today there are carvings for the match . Secondly, this time the IPL is happening in the festive season, which was not done.And when this time India matches, the TRP goes up. This is also the reason why IPL is happening at this time, that is why many people will tighten it. And people in Pandemic during Pandemic and after Pandamic people need some thing to be busy.This time, the IPL will be very entertaining and most Consuming . This time the IPL will be entertained or not, it is not known but it will definitely be Most Watched and will consume by whole world.It will also be very important for IPL players. Competition of this IPL will be hard.
