Raza getting a chance in the IPL?

তবে কি আইপিএলে সুযোগ পাচ্ছেন রাজা?

Sikandar Raja has been performing impressively with the bat in recent times. He single-handedly led Zimbabwe in the T20 World Cup held in Australia. Qualifiers to mains, there again beating superpowers like Pakistan. This all-rounder has made important contributions everywhere. Effective off-spin with batting is a complete package!

As well as getting rewards for good performance, they are also getting accolades at the same time. Raja Bandana is heard on the lips of big stars. But the most important thing may be the appreciation of Indian legends. Because, the door of playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) can really open in their eyes. This time the Zimbabwean star may get that too.

Raja’s name is also in the final list of the IPL auction. About him, Indian legend Anil Kumble said, “Raja is a great cricketer. His style of cricket matches well with modern cricket. I would pick Raja to strengthen Delhi Capitals in the middle order and spin. Because he can deliver some great innings with the bat. Also Does good off spin too. Which is difficult to understand easily. It is very much needed in T20. Also recent performances are voting in his favor.”

It should be noted that Raja scored 219 runs with the bat in the last T20 World Cup. He also took 10 wickets with the ball. On that occasion, he won the ICC Player of the Month award once. He is regarded as one of the best performers of the World Cup. Because of that, he can get a chance to play in the world’s biggest franchise league like IPL.

Meanwhile, the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has not arranged any major auction for the 2023 IPL. The teams have retained most of the players from last season. The auction will be held on a small scale. From there, any franchise has the opportunity to bring Raja into the team. Of course, Raja has the experience of playing in global leagues like BPL, PSL.
