The Board of control for Cricket in India has remodelled the premier Under-23 tournament to Under-25 in First Class and has renamed its List A version. The Colonel CK Nayudu Tournament, which has been played for the Uner-23 first Class State Championship over the years will now be played by Under-25 teams instead and there would be no U-23 First-Class tournament. 

The Board also confirmed that there will be no cap on the number of players to play in their U-25 for those who have previously represented their state teams in the Ranji Trophy, the highest level of First-Class cricket in the country.

"There will be NO cap on the number of players who were / will be in the playing XI of their respective State teams in Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare and /or Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy during the ongoing season,” BCCI's General Manager, Game Development, Dhiraj Malhotra was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz, which claimed it had got access to a letter sent to State Associations. 

"The Col C K Nayudu Trophy tournament was conducted for the Men's Under-23 age group in both one day (limited-overs) and 4-day format and was last played in 2019 - 2020 season." The 2019-20 season of the CK Nayudu Trophy for First class was won by Vidarbha where it defeated Madhya Pradesh by eight wickets while the List A tournament was won by Bengal which defeated Gujarat by 64 runs in the Final held at Dehradun.

The board also informed about the name changes in the same letter as well. "We invite your attention to the following amendments for this season 2021 - 2022; The one day (limited-overs) tournament will now be named as ' Men's State A One Day Tournament'; The multi-day (4-day) tournament will now be named as 'Col C K Nayudu Trophy - Men's U 25',” the letter added. 

In another major development, much like last year, the BCCI’s Annual General Meeting, which usually takes place by the end of September of every year, has now been postponed to December. BCCI cited a Tamil Nadu Government regarding companies registered under Tamil Nadu Societies Act, 1975, which states that they can postpone their AGM to December instead of the annual limit of September 30. 

"You are hereby informed that the BCCI will not have its Annual General Meeting by 30, September 2021. We will keep you informed regarding the date of the Annual General Meeting,” the letter told the State Associations.
