Suresh Raina and Ravi Shastri will be seen in the commentary box during the Indian Premier League 2022.

This will be the first time Raina will not play in the tournament after going unsold in the mega auction that took place in Bengaluru.

Ravi Shastri was approached by one of the two new franchises for a coaching job, but it seems he refused.

So instead, he will return as a commentator for the first time since he was appointed India’s head coach in 2017.

Both Suresh Raina and Ravi Shastri will be part of the Hindi commentary team for the cash-rich league.

“You all know that Raina won’t be a part of the competition, but we wanted to link him with the tournament. He has a massive fan following, and that’s why he is known as Mr IPL. As for Shastri, he was part of Star Sports, but he didn’t commentate after the final of Champions Trophy in 2017 as he became India’s head coach,” an IPL source said while speaking to Jagran.

Meanwhile, it has also been reported that Ravi Shastri is taking Hindi classes to improve his command of the language.
