ECB slams the reports of requests from BCCI for rescheduling IPL

It was earlier said that BCCI made a request to ECB for preponing the Test series by a week so that a window could be opened for holding the IPL.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) slammed the reports of requests from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for preponing some matches of the tour by a week to open a window for holding the remaining phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

It was earlier said that BCCI made a request to ECB for preponing the Test series by a week so that a window could be opened for holding the IPL.

“We talk to the BCCI on a regular basis about a wide range of issues especially as we address the challenges of Covid-19, but have had no official request to change dates and are continuing to plan for the five-Test series as is scheduled,” a spokesman for the England board said late on Thursday (May 19) night.

“The Board of Control for Cricket in India has enquired about the possibility of moving the final Test of the English summer in order to make room to complete the postponed Indian Premier League. Informal discussions have been had between the respective boards as cricket continues to grapple with a schedule ravaged by COVID.”
