Leading Indian women cricketers including Jemimah Rodrigues, Veda Krishnamurthy, and Deepti Sharma will participate in a club T20 tournament which will be held in Bengaluru from Monday onwards even as uncertainty is foreseen over the team’s next international assignment in the middle of a global pandemic.

The other Indian players among Rodrigues, Krishnamurthy, and Sharma participating in the tournament are Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Punam Raut, Radha Yadav, Vanitha V R, Nuzhat Parveen, Anuja Patil and Thirush Kamini.

The tournament, for which Gamezy and Rummy Culture are the co-sponsors is comprised of four teams which will run from January 4 to January 12 and has been organised to honour the Golden Jubilee of the Falcon Sports Club.

Present BCCI Apex Council member and Former India captain Shantha Rangaswamy, who is co-jointly the president of the Falcon Sports Club, said, “The event has been approved by the Karnataka State Cricket Association. Moreover, we are fully prepared as we have taken permission from other state associations which were required for outstation players.”

Adding to her statement, she also said that the country is lacking in the active game of cricket since the COVID-19 pandemic but this has not stopped outstation players interest from participating and getting back in to the field. “This is not only a good opportunity for many younger uncapped players to rub shoulders with the best, but also a much-needed game time for our Indian players” she said.

The Indian team has been inactive on the pitch since the T20 World Cup which took place in March. Moreover, there seems no confirmation yet on their fixture with the Australia tour which was scheduled to be held later this month but has been postponed to 2022. There is also no final word yet on the women’s domestic season.

To comply with the restrictions of the pandemic, outstation players will have to carry a RT-PCR report which proves them COVID-19 free. The report is expected to be older not more than 2-3 days.
