This effectively draws curtains on the first division, second division and all age group tournaments for the current season.

"After a prolonged and detailed deliberation all the tournaments for the season 2019-20 has been called off for this season as the health and safety of our players is paramount to the association," CAB president Avishek Dalmiya said after their tournament committee meeting.

"It was also decided that it would be a fresh season when we start next. There will be no continuity from this season," Dalmiya said.

Members of tour, fixtures and technical committee, chairman of the medical committee and legal counsel Samrat Sen attended the meeting.
