Another good news has come with the organization of the tournament for the players. The Board of Control for Cricket in India has paid the domestic players as compensation for the last season canceled due to Corona.
The BCCI had announced last year that the board would compensate the loss to the players due to the cancellation of the tournament. For this, a committee was constituted by the BCCI under the chairmanship of former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin, which suggested the payment formula. The board has now paid the players by implementing this formula. Last year, for the first time in the 85-year history of the Ranji Trophy, the tournament had to be called off.
