Tamil Nadu recently won the Vijay Hazare Trophy tournament and now all set to play the next Deodhar Trophy with other 2 teams India Red & India Blue. Squads and captains are already announced for all 3 teams. Deodhar Trophy will start after this round robin pass final of 29th March.
Some legendary players will miss this tournament like MS Dhoni & Yuvraj Singh. Rohit Sharma and Parthiv Patel is appointed as captain for both India Blue & India Red team. In India Red team some briliiant cricketers will play the Deodhar Trophy such as Harbhajan Singh, Krunal Pandya and wicket keeper batsmen Rishabh Pant.
In India Red team Parthiv Patel appointed as captain and along with him some good players like Shikhar Shawan, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadav will play this Deodhar Trophy. Deodhar Trophy tournament will be the last 50 over tournament before champion’s trophy. Tamil Nadu team is in form and we have seen their performance in Vijay Hazare Trophy. Tamil Nadu also announced the squad and Vijay Shankar will lead the team.
Suresh Raina is not included in any team so there is still doubt to see him in 50 overs cricket competition ahead. Mohammad Shami who took 4 wickets in Vijay Hazare Final will not play deodhar trophy as he was picked for Dharmshala test against Australia. There is an opportunity for Shikhar Dhavan and Harbhajan Singh to play cricket at their best and secure the place in ODI cricket.
