Team India may clash with rest of world, govt wants cricket match on Independence Day

New Delhi: August 15 marks the 75th anniversary of India’s independence. On this day in 1947, India gained independence from the British. Preparations are being made to celebrate the occasion across the country. Meanwhile, the Indian government wants to include cricket in it. According to the report, the government has sent a proposal to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). In which a match between India and the rest of the world is said to be on August 22.

Sources indicated that the Ministry of Culture, which sent the proposal, was in talks with BCCI officials. So that the top players of India as well as famous cricketers from abroad can be tried to play matches as part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav campaign. BCCI sources said the proposal was being discussed at the moment as there were several factors to consider when inviting international players to play.

“We have received a proposal from the government to host a cricket match between India XI and World XI on August 22,” a BCCI source said. We will need at least 13-14 international players for the rest of the world team. Their availability is something to look out for.

At that time, England players would be playing their home cricket. The Caribbean Premier League is also to be played in the West Indies at that time. The BCCI is also looking into whether international players will have to pay for their participation.

The availability of India’s key players will not be much of a problem. The team will return on August 20 after concluding the tour of Zimbabwe. Anyway, the top players of the team will not go on this tour. This is followed by the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka from August 27. In that case, Indian players will be easily available for this match.
