Ranji is essential for the players, according to Ajinkya Rahane

Rahane discusses the significance of the Ranji Trophy and its impact on the players.

Ajinkya Rahane discussed the importance of red-ball cricket, with the Ranji Trophy being one of the most important tournaments for players because it provides a sense of competition, allowing young players to gain recognition while also allowing experienced players to practise ahead of any international tour.

In an appearance on ‘Backstage with Boria,’ Ajinkya Rahane expressed his thoughts on the importance of the Ranji Trophy, noting that it is ‘THE’ event for Indian players, providing a plethora of opportunities to each player based on their particular skill set. The Ranji Trophy, Rahane believes, will enable him to play matches, which will be beneficial preparation for any foreign tour.

The opinion of Rahane has been proved right as fans witness S Sreesanth making comeback in the Kerala squad. S Sreesanth’s return to the Kerala squad after 9 years would aid him in reviving match principles and under-pressure scenarios at the game, as the veteran Indian pacer has also been registered in the IPL auctions and will go under the hammer on the 12th and 13th of February.

“Ranji is ‘the’ tournament in our circuit,” Ajinkya Rahane said, adding that he respects the BCCI’s efforts in staging this significant event, citing COVID-19 worries across the country.

The Ranji Trophy will begin on February 17 and will be divided into two phases: pre-IPL and post-IPL sessions.Rahane will play for Mumbai in the forthcoming Ranji Trophy, which will be captained by teenager Prithvi Shaw, and fans may be looking for a strong comeback from Ajinkya Rahane by wishing for a successful season in the Ranji Trophy.
