The <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Vijay-Hazare-Trophy-2018-19">Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018-19</a> season which began on September 19 concluded on October 20 with Mumbai walking away with the title after 12 years. <p></p> <p></p>The <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/deodhar-trophy-2018-19">Deodhar Trophy 2018-19</a> tournament, the next List A event, began in less than a week, and concludes on October 27 at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi which gives players less than four days to recover before the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/ranji-trophy-2018-19-2">Ranji Trophy 2018-19</a> season begins on November 1. <p></p> <p></p>Consider Mumbai for example. As many as five players <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/prithvi-shaw">Prithvi Shaw</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shreyas-iyer/">Shreyas Iyer</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ajinkya-rahane/">Ajinkya Rahane</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/dhawal-kulkarni/">Dhawal Kulkarni</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/suryakumar-yadav/">Suryakumar Yadav</a> are part of the ongoing Deodhar Trophy and have no clue about the 15-man squad for the Ranji Trophy. <p></p> <p></p> First of all, we want to understand, who has chalked out this year s domestic scheduling. Is it the BCCI s operations team? Because we re given to understand that the Board hasn t done it. But who do we ask? a state association president was quoted as saying in a report in the <em>Times of India</em> on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p> Did they consider that Vijay Hazare tournament has close to 160 matches already so Deodhar wouldn t mean much? BCCI member associations said. <p></p> <p></p>Reportedly, the schedule has not got down well with Mumbai coach Vinayak Samant, who is also left without another four to five cricketers from the set-up, currently involved in local tournaments. <p></p> <p></p> Are the selectors going to watch Prithvi Shaw in Deodhar and decide if he s going to go to Australia to play the onedayers? There s absolute intellectual bankruptcy here, just in case nobody s noticing, a source said.
