Indian Cricket Team are set to play some exciting series on the home turf as they are wrapping up their foreign games with the second leg of IPL. The 2021-2022 schedule for the men in blue is exciting as it might see the return of fans ever since gathering at sporting events was disallowed because of the pandemic.
While fans across the country are gearing up to cheer for the men in blue, The Hyderabadi fans will have to watch these exciting games at home or a live screening venue as the BCCI has decided not to schedule any matches at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.
This decision has come off after the BCCI has noticed the current chaos between its apex members and Mohammed Azharuddin, President of HCA. While the home games will feature New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies, Sri Lanka with a total of 20 international games, including 14 T20s, 4 Tests, and 3 ODIs, the city stadium will be left out of all these matches as the HCA is currently battling internal issues and facing allegations over bias in the Hyderabad U19.
BCCI announced this decision along with the tour dates. This year, smaller venues like Rajkot, Jaipur, Dharamshala, and Ranchi host games but not Hyderabad. While the board members in HCA have been taken aback by this decision, they are also hoping for a straightforward solution to the ongoing situation so that the BCCI can review this decision.
