BCCI president Sourav Ganguly announced that the India will join three other big teams to play a super series from 2021 in India.
Not long back ago, ICC had proposed to have a global tournament that would take place annually from 2023 to 2031. The top three cricket boards, BCCI, CA and ECB rejected their idea.
It will be interesting to note that, the three teams- India, Australia and England- will team up with another team to play in the Super Series. Speaking to the media during the fantasy cricket app My11Circle’s event, Ganguly did not name the fourth team, but said that the tournament will be held in India.
“Australia, England, India and another top team will feature in the Super Series which begins in 2021 and the first edition of the tournament will be played in India,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by Telegraph. “We have very good relations with the ECB and the meeting went off very well.”
“This was my first auction as BCCI president, the overall experience was quite good. It seems all the teams are balanced and the matches would be enjoyable,” he said.
“No, I don’t think the amount was too high. It has a lot to do with the demand… Especially at these small auctions, franchises go all out after one player. That is why Ben Stokes’s value shot off the roof to Rs 14.5 crore when he was the part of a similar small auction in 2017. I wish both of them (Ishan Porel and Shahbaz Ahmed) all the best. Hope they will do well. Not only them, Wriddhiman Saha, Shreevats Goswami, Mohammed Shami are also with the IPL teams. This was my first auction as BCCI president, the overall experience was quite good. It seems all the teams are balanced and the matches would be enjoyable.”
