17 Aug 2020
With covid-19 still spreading in India at a hectic pace, Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) aims for getting professional cricket back on field by October this year. While it can turn out to be perilous, RCA President and Rajasthan Chief Minister’s son, Vaibhav Gehlot, feels that they can get cricket back as all the norms set by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would be followed by them.
"Our secretary has written to the state government that we want to start the domestic tournament. We have forwarded the guidelines of the BCCI as well to the state government ... I am fully hopeful that the state government, as per the guideline of the BCCI, can definitely allow domestic cricket in October," Gehlot was quoted as saying by India Today.
Further, Gehlot Junior believes that he will ensure the presence of medical staff and following the guidelines would be able to create an atmosphere for cricket in the state.
"As per the BCCI guideline mentioning covid-19 tests, we have asked for the medical team which will remain fixed. Like this, there are several guidelines which will be followed (to ensure prevention from Covid 19)," said the RCA president.
Along with being hopeful for starting the professional cricket season, the RCA and its members are also expecting Jaipur to soon have a stadium of International stature to conduct cricket matches.
"We have specially spoken about the new stadium today. You know that the government has given the approval for it. It will be a stadium with hundred acres of land. So, definitely it will be international standard with international matches," Gehlot prided himself.
