Earlier, Raina was also seen training with Rishabh Pant where the former was seen giving wicket-keeping practice to the youngster. Well, one thing is sure that these cricketers are raring to get back on the field as soon as possible. However, they have to wait for quite some more time as BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has made it crystal clear that the national team will not resume practice at least before August.
Nevertheless, BCCI is planning to host the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in September-October. As per the latest reports, IPL 2020 is set to take place in UAE. However, BCCI still have to wait for the official confirmation of International Cricket Council (ICC) regarding the postponement of T20 World Cup.
