“Yeah, they are very good players. Hopefully, they will go back to Ranji Trophy and score a lot of runs, which I am sure they will. I don’t see any problem [for them to go back to domestic cricket after playing so much international cricket]. Ranji Trophy is a huge tournament, and we have all played the tournament,” Ganguly told to Sportstar. 

The ex India captain reckons, it won’t be a problem for the batters to go back and play domestic games.

“So, they, too, will go back there and perform. They have played the tournament in the past when they were only playing Test cricket and were not part of the ODI or limited-overs team. So, that won’t be a problem,” he added.

The Ranji trophy after a 1-year gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be making it’s comeback, starting off with the league phase from February 16th.
