“Sam Curran and Ben Stokes will be the favorites”: Suresh Raina

Suresh Raina stated, “Sam Curran has performed admirably for both England and the Chennai Super Kings, and England has been well guided by Ben Stokes. Having a top all-rounder on your squad might so alter the flow of the game. Then there’s Jaydev Unadkat, who recently won the Vijay Hazare Trophy and has much of IPL experience.”
