Complete set of (SOPs) Standard Operating Procedure for IPL proposed by BCCI

It has been five months since Steve Smith featured in an worldwide match.

Smith understands the conditions will be challenging and that adaptability will be the key.

"It's disappointing that it's not in India, we would have absolutely loved to play there".

Australia will resume their worldwide calendar with a white-ball series against England and Smith said that nothing better than getting to play some quality cricket after almost seven months. Though the IPL teams took smaller squad to UAE when the IPL was held in Emirates in 2014 but this time the entire duration of the tournament is being held in the Gulf country and the situation is different. "Everyone going in with same sort of preparation", the former Australian skipper said. One section believes that the number of players should be limited so that it is to prepare the bio-secure bubble in UAE and the logistics will be easier to handle. So when profit is designed on that variety of funds BCCI invests it back again into initially-course cricket. Like most of the world we also had to shut down and find a way out through this Covid-19 experience which has been incredibly different for everyone.

And Smith joked that they should probably save their best for the IPL. While Smith boasts of 7227 runs (@62.84) in Tests and 4162 runs (@42.46) in ODIs, comparatively he has been an underachiever in the shortest format including IPL. One reason for his poor scores can be attributed to missing out on an entire season in 2018 due to the ball tampering episode.

Blue Jays weekend series against Phillies on hold
Montoyo said the team plans to stay in the US capital until new travel plans can be finalized. "But that's all I know right now". The Phillies played the Miami Marlins last weekend in Philadelphia, and 17 Marlins have since been diagnosed with coronavirus.

"I haven't played a game since February (March 13). Yes, it's hugely disappointing that it's not taking place in India but it's a decision to get the tournament up and running", Steve Smith said while speaking at a virtual interactive session following a private screening of the documentary "The Inside Story: A season with Rajasthan Royals, ' an intimate look at the Royals" campaign in the IPL previous year.

The series "Inside Story: A Season with Rajasthan Royals" follows the team's journey behind-the-scenes, with extraordinary access giving a rare look at the inside workings of a leading cricket franchise and their experiences during the 2019 season. "And that communication helped as we won three out of five matches then", Royals COO Jake Luch McCrum said.

The Indian cricket body has been keen on hosting IPL in 2020 and the putting back of the T20 World Cup, which is slated to beheld in Australia in October-Novembe, has has cleared it route for the high earning T20 league. "I have seen Stokes go from strength to strength".

COVID tests in two weeks for all players. He bowled beautifully and got some wickets as well. He wants to be in hotspots. On the family front, Smith admitted that staying in a bio-secure environment away from "loved ones" is extremely hard but elite cricketers like him hardly have any option.
