Why BCCI Decider?
BCCI is yet to announce the schedule of the 2020/21 season but it is confirmed that the board will be organising the T20 tournament before the IPL auction.Since , there are some speculations saying that BCCI planned to conduct mega Auction for the year 2021 and two new teams might be added in the IPL,so they decided to conduct this First -Class tournament before IPL which is played as a T20 format that helps many youngsters to grab a chance in IPL auctions with their performance ,Players like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devdutt Padikkal sealed their place in IPL 2020 with their domestic performance.Also , if Raina returns to domestic Cricket BCCI viewership of domestic will increase since the big names are played .Lets hope for Suresh Raina’s inside out shots in this tournament.
Why Suresh Raina choose Domestic Cricket (Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy)?
For Suresh Raina, he needs some match practice before IPL so this domestic tournament will be very handy to get his T20 form. About his CSK retention it’s upto CSK management whether they will retain him or not. If any new Team is added in IPL, there are chances that he might lead a new Team to get fanbase for their franchise. Since he already lead Gujarat in the year 2016, 2017 IPL season.
