Suresh Raina is no stranger to the Indian T20 League fans. Raina has been an important part of the Chennai franchise in the Indian T20 League from the very beginning. He played 205 matches and scored 5528 runs in the Indian T20 League throughout his career.
This year, due to waning form and age factor the teams, ignored Raina in the mega auction. Even after a couple of players pulled out, Raina was not considered as a replacement. But now, it appears that the fans will be able to see the cricketer in the upcoming season after all. Reportedly Raina will be part of the commentary team for the upcoming season. How he does in the new role will be something exciting to see.
â€œDhoni finishes off in style!!!!! India lifts the World Cup after 28 yearsâ€¦.â€ â€“ it was the voice of Ravi Shastri that made this iconic moment etched in the memories of every Indian cricket fan. According to reports, fans will again be treated with the voice of Shastri in the upcoming season of the Indian T20 League.
After his coaching stint with the national team of India, he was approached by one of the two new teams for the same, but nothing materialised. Thus, Shastri will be back in the commentary box.
Both Raina and Shastri will be part of the Hindi commentary team. For Shastri, this would be a new role as he has done English commentary most of his career. Thus, he is reportedly taking Hindi lessons on Zoom from an expert and rehearsing commentary skills. The fans will be looking forward to the excitement these two bring in the match with their commentary.
