Ravichandran Ashwin to play county match for Surrey ahead of Test series against England
11 July 2021
India’s domestic T20 tournament Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is set to begin on November 4 while the final of the competition will be held on November 22 in Delhi. Defending champions Tamil Nadu will begin the campaign against Maharashtra in Lucknow.
There was a Covid-19 scare before the start of the tournament after four Mumbai players Sarfaraz Khan, Shams Mulani, Prashant Solanki and Sairaj Patil had tested positive for the virus and were ruled out.
“Four players from the senior team have tested positive, they are Shams Mulani, Sairaj Patil, Prashant Solanki and Sarfaraz Khan,” a well-placed source told PTI on condition of anonymity.
“We are conducting Rapid RT-PCR (of the players named as replacements) and their reports will come soon and accordingly they will join the team. We are also conducting the RT-PCR test of the other squad members,” the source said. Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is the premier T20 tournament of the country and a lot of eyes will be on it this time around with two new Indian Premier League franchises being introduced from the 2022 season.
There will be a lot of interest in the fast bowling division as well as for bowlers who can hit big down the order.
