Complete set of (SOPs) Standard Operating Procedure for IPL proposed by BCCI

Pandemic will start hitting Indian cricket more in October: Rahul Dravid

Ever since IPL GC chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed the shift to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the start date (September 19), pending government clearance, fans and franchises have been eagerly awaiting information on the conduct of the tournament, deferred because of the pandemic. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, Secretary Jay Shah will likely attend the meeting.

There is also no clarity on the quarantine rules for the overseas players, and the franchises seek answers on who all would be allowed inside the bubble.

"If BCCI has a helpline to deal with mental health, it could be a real welcome move and also step in the right direction which is also need of the hour", a franchise official said.

The approval of minutes of three previous GC meetings. While Vivo is the title sponsor, PayTM, Dream 11, BYJUs and Swiggy - who have Chinese investments - are other sponsors of the tournament. Due to the prevailing tension between India and China, the matter will be up for discussion.

It is learnt that the franchises can work around the the SOP manual which the BCCI will handover to them.

The decision has been taken to prevent the players from contracting the deadly COVID-19.

Tsarnaev was convicted on 30 charges, which include conspiracy and the use of a weapon of mass destruction. In a concurring opinion , Judge Juan Torruella wrote that the case should never have been tried in Boston.

While BCCI's SOP can be upgraded by the franchises, they in no way can downgrade it.

Wen told that foreign players will be wary of travelling to India compared to Dubai where the case count is less than a lakh, he said that why doesn't the BCCI think of making it a league full of Indian players.

One of the franchises is planning to facilitate testing of players by sending medical personnel to their respective residences.

"Almost all the franchises have top stars coming in from South Africa and it only makes sense to have them all fly into the UAE on a chartered plane and the franchises share the expense". The number of members in the squad of each franchise can be a crucial discussion point in this meeting. In fact, it costs a lot of money to hold.

Currently, BCCI's ACU unit has eight full-time officers but even then, they would require more workforce with each team needing one integrity officer and also the hotels where the teams are staying need to be monitored as there would be other guests too. "There has to be an SOP on hiring net bowlers and resources", the official added. The BCCI has drafted detailed guidelines, which will be discussed on Sunday. The lucrative tournament was founded by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in 2008.
