The cancellation of this tournament will be a big loss for Team India, said former coach Ravi Shastri in a shocking statement.
Former Team India coach Ravi Shastri has recently named the tournament, which could be a big loss for the Indian team if it fails. We tell you that after the T20 World Cup, Robi Shastri’s term has expired and Rahul Dravid has been made the new coach of the team. Then let me know, Shastri has given this amazing statement about which tournament.
Shastri made a big statement
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri on Friday said the Ranji Trophy is an important part of Indian cricket and Indian cricket would be “spineless” if expected. Shastri made the statement shortly before the BCCI’s announcement to host the Ranji Trophy in two phases from next month. In fact, the Ranji Trophy was supposed to start on January 13, but it was postponed indefinitely due to the growing Corona case in India. The former coach shared a tweet about this and wrote,
“The Ranji Trophy is the backbone of Indian cricket. Ignoring it will make you spineless. “
The Ranji Trophy will be played in two phases
BCCI secretary Joy Shah recently issued a statement saying the tournament would be held in two phases. In a statement, he said:
“The board has decided to organize the Ranji Trophy in two stages. The first round will be a league match and a knockout match in June.
In fact, in a situation where the IPL could start from March 27, it would not be possible to win the Ranji Trophy all at once. For this reason, the board has planned to hold the first session of Ranji Trophy from February to March and the second session in June-July. Under the circumstances, the 36-team tournament will start in the second week of February and last for a month.
