Suresh Raina, who was a part of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), will debut as a commentator in the IPL. Raina said- I am excited. There are already many veterans in the commentary box. Big names like Ravi Bhai, Bhajji Paaji, Irfan Pathan are included. It would be nice if you share your experiences. He said that after getting the prize tag in the auction, the pressure on the players increases. This time the players have got a lot of money, so there is going to be pressure. Here are excerpts from the conversation with Raina…
Question: Players get a lot of money in the auction. How much pressure does it have?
AnswerAfter getting the prize tag in the auction, there is a lot of pressure on the players. Once a player performs well, then he takes off from there, but if he is not able to perform then his graph goes down. This time the players have got a lot of money in the auction. So there will be pressure.
Question, This time teams are participating in two new IPL. How do you see it?
AnswerGood talent has come out of IPL. The players have also played for India. He has also performed well at the international level. Experience will definitely come in handy. The senior players have a good rapport with the domestic players.
Question, The league matches will be played in Mumbai. Who will get more benefit in this?
Answer: It will be a little hot. So the spinners will have a good role in the afternoon matches. At the same time, the selectors will keep an eye on the fast bowlers, because the England tour is going to happen in the coming days. There is also a World Cup. The ball will swing in the starting time. Spinners will also contribute in the powerplay. Every ground pitch behaves differently.
Question, How beneficial will the practice be for the team before the start of the league?
AnswerDhoni bhai’s team is practicing with good planning. The team has practiced in Surat. Chennai is doing well. All their matches are going to be good. There are players like Ambati Rayudu, Robin Uthappa, Dwayne Bravo in the team. There is also Ravindra Jadeja, who has done well in the past. If CSK starts well, they will qualify.
