Is series against England going to be held in India? Sourav Ganguly replied

Kolkata: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Chief Sourav Ganguly has said that despite the situation arising out of the corona virus pandemic, the board will do its best to ensure that the home series against England is held in India. He hoped that domestic tournaments would also be started at some point. Corona virus cases in India have crossed six million, of which more than 96,000 people have died.

England have to tour India for 5 Tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20 Internationals between January and March next year. When asked about the option of holding a series against England in the UAE at a press conference, he said, "Our priority is that this series against England should be in India only. We will try to do it on Indian grounds. UAE has the advantage that there are 3 stadiums (Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai)".

The BCCI recently signed an MoU with the Emirates Cricket Board to organize matches. Ganguly said, "We also have facilities in Mumbai where there are CCI, Wankhede and DY Patil stadiums. We also have Eden Gardens. We have to create a bio bubble (bio-safe environment). We want to play our cricket in India only. But we are also monitoring the condition of corona virus".
