A statement issued by the BCCI highlighted the commendable work undertaken by the state associations in successfully executing a cricket season overflowing with marquee events. This included the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, the inaugural Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024, numerous international bilateral series, and a complete domestic cricket season.

The BCCI also used the opportunity to seek feedback from the state associations regarding a proposed new domestic structure for the upcoming 2024-25 season. This revamped structure, implemented based on the recommendations of VVS Laxman (Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy), Rahul Dravid (Head Coach of Team India), and Ajit Agarkar (Chairman of the Senior Selection Committee), will undergo a review after its first year of operation.

Focus on Infrastructure Development

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah provided updates on the ongoing development of the new Centre of Excellence in Bengaluru, a state-of-the-art facility aimed at nurturing future cricketing talents. He also addressed the establishment of indoor cricket academies in the North-Eastern states, Patna, and Jammu and Kashmir. These initiatives demonstrate the BCCI’s commitment to expanding cricketing infrastructure across the country.

This meeting comes on the heels of Shah’s earlier gesture of appreciation towards the ground staff who tirelessly maintained pitches throughout the 17th edition of the IPL. His commitment to acknowledging the contributions of all parties involved in Indian cricket is a positive sign for the sport’s future in the country.
