Sourav Ganguly says the BCCI will do all it can to ensure India have home advantage against England next year.
England are scheduled to travel to India for five Tests, three ODIs and three Twenty20 International matches between January and March.
There has been talk of those encounters being staged in the United Arab Emirates due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Indian Premier League was moved to the UAE, but BCCI president Ganguly hopes international cricket can take place on Indian soil early next year.
"Priority is to make this happen in India. We will try to make this happen on Indian grounds," said the former India all-rounder.
"The advantage in UAE is they have three stadiums [in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai],
"We also have the same facility in Mumbai – CCI, Wankhede and DY Patil. We also have Eden Gardens. We have to create a bubble.
"We want to hold our cricket in India, that's where the game is, that's where the heart is. But we are monitoring the COVID situation.
He added: "Everything is fluid. It's been hard for the last six months to keep everything in order. You want your cricket to happen.
"You want lives to get back to normal, there are players involved. But you also want to have a close look at the COVID situation."
