A number of significant decisions were taken at the 19th Apex Council meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). One of the key choices was modernising cricket venues all around the nation. The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, which will be exclusively hosted by India for the first time, will be upgraded over the course of two phases, with the first phase concentrating on the stadiums. Before the commencement of the World Cup, the BCCI wants to have these stadiums finished. The remaining cricket stadiums will be upgraded during the second phase.

The BCCI also declared that they intend to enter teams for both the male and female cricket competitions at the future Asian Games, which will take place in Hangzhou, China, in the month of September 2023. However, the Indian cricket authority is going to pick players who are not competing in the World Cup to represent the country in the renowned multisport competition owing to a schedule issue with the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

Other decisions taken during the meeting included continuing the concept of Impact Player in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, with a few modifications from the previous season. The teams will now have to select their playing XI and four substitute players before the toss, and they will be able to use the Impact Player at any time during the match. Additionally, to balance the contest between bat and ball, the upcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy will see the introduction of two bouncers per over.

Overall, the BCCI’s 19th Apex Council meeting addressed various important matters related to Indian cricket. The decisions made during the meeting not only focus on the development and upgradation of cricket stadiums but also cover player participation policies, international tournaments, and improvements in domestic tournaments like the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. These decisions aim to enhance the overall cricketing experience in India and ensure a successful hosting of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.
