"We have had extensive discussion on domestic cricket and we have tentatively decided to start the competitions from January 1, 2021," Ganguly told PTI. "We will certainly have the full fledged Ranji Trophy red-ball tournament. It will probably not be possible to hold all the tournaments."

Amidst all the uncertainty, Ganguly, however, assured that age-group and women's cricket tournaments would be held between March and April. He reiterated that the board is planning extensively to make sure matches are held.

"We also have elaborate plans for our age-group and women's cricket. We will start with the Ranji Trophy and then we will also have the other tournaments between March and April," he concluded.

It was earlier announced that the women's team would travel to Sri Lanka after the Women's T20 Challenge in the UAE. However, the tour came under a cloud following the Sri Lankan government's 14-day quarantine requirement. There is still no official word about whether the series will go ahead as planned.
