Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has okayed resumption of domestic cricket across the country with riders. A set of  Standard Operating Procedures have been issued to the state associations for this purpose. According to the BCCI guidelines, the players are required to sign the form acknowledging the risks involved with training resumption amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Support staff, officials and ground staff over 60 years of age and with individuals with underlying medical conditions are barred from attending training camps until suitable guidelines are issued by the Government,  as per the SOP. The guidelines detail how every state association will be required to appoint a Chief Medical Officer (CMO) who will be responsible for maintaining bio-safety guidelines. The CMO will also be needed to conduct a webinar and inform the stakeholders about all the protocols. All players and staff have been asked to download the Aarogya Setu app for contact tracing, protection and prevention against the coronavirus. Before returning to training, the medical team of each state unit will have to acquire the travel and medical history for the past two weeks of all the players and staff through an online questionnaire. If players or support staff are suspected of coronavirus like symptoms, will undergo PCR tests.
