International cricket is returning next month. The three-Test series between England and West Indies is to begin from 8th of July. However, when cricket will begin in India, it is still a big question. The Indian team has not played cricket since March. The fans are waiting for when cricket will start again. However, due to Coronavirus epidemic, cricket activities are currently being braided.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the players are also not in a hurry to return to the field. BCCI President Saurav Ganguly has clarified how long cricket activities can start in India. Saurabh, while speaking to a news channel, made it clear that there is no possibility of starting the camp for players before August. He told ABP News that this could be done only after August.

The corona virus epidemic has had a profound impact on the schedule of the Indian cricket team. The board has postponed several series due to this global epidemic. The first South African team returned in March without playing the series. This year's IPL was postponed indefinitely. The Indian team was to tour Sri Lanka in June and play a series with Zimbabwe in August. But all these have been postponed for now.
Regarding the IPL, however, it has been made clear by the board that it wants to get it done. The board is eyeing the September-November window. The Asia Cup is scheduled in September this year and the T20 World Cup in October-November. However, the hosts have already made it clear that they cannot get it done this year. If the World Cup gets postponed for this year, the board may seek a window for the IPL.
