“We are thankful to the honourable Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, chief secretary and Government of West Bengal for announcing the resumption of sporting activities as well as for allowing 75 per cent of the capacity of spectators back to the stadium,” CAB president Avishek Dalmiya said in a statement.
“We feel that it will give a fresh lease of life to the sportspersons of the state. After the New Zealand T20I last year, this time too, CAB is confident that it will be able to successfully host the three T20Is against the West Indies in a similar manner,” he added.
From February 6 to February 16, Team India will play three ODIs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Followed by a T20I series at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
The CAB president also stated that the board is eager to resume local cricket events. As soon as possible, in accordance with COVID norms and protocols.
“In fact, CAB has taken proactive steps to vaccinate all the players. Above the age of 15 years who would be participating in the CAB Leagues,” said Avishek Dalmiya.
“In this regard, it may not be out of place to mention that CAB had already organized onsite vaccination camp at Eden Gardens. Recently where first doses of vaccines were given to players in the age bracket of 15 to 18,” he added.
CAB is planning another camp so that these players can get the second dose before the league starts.
