he series opener in Trent Bridge from August 4-8 will, according to the current schedule, be followed by Tests at Lord's (August 12-16), Headingley (August 25-29), The Oval (September 2-6) and Old Trafford (September 10-14).

If the final Test ends around September 7, it would give the BCCI a three-week window - which is how much time the board feels it needs - to complete the remaining 31 games. That would then allow time for international teams to converge for the T20 World Cup, which is to run from the middle of October and until November 14.

If only they had played more double headers, we could have finished at least 15-20 more matches before IPL was suspended. IIRC we had only 4-5 double headers. Most weekends also didn't have one.

 

Greed of broadcasters will ultimately bite them in the back now.
