Bengal Captain Manoj Tiwary Reverses his Retirement decision and will play one more year for Bengal

Less than a week ago, Manoj Tiwary announced his retirement from all formats of cricket. The captain of Bengal said on Tuesday that he has decided to reverse his decision to retire and wants to give one more try to win the Ranji Trophy. The two-time champion Bengal Tigers have reached the finals of the Ranji Trophy twice in the last three seasons but have yet to win the trophy.
The Tiwary-led Bengal were the favorites to win the title at home last season, but Saurashtra defeated them by nine wickets in a repeat of the outcome of the 2019–20 season's final.
A press conference was called at the Eden Gardens, where Tiwary said, "It was a proud moment for me to captain Bengal to the final last season. I want to give it one more try before leaving. Next year, there will not be any more U-turns. I want to give one more year to Bengal cricket.
Tiwary further said his sudden decision to say "goodbye to cricket" by posting a farewell post on Instagram had taken everyone by surprise, including his wife.
He said, "She had gone to the gym, and after coming back, she also scolded me. Dada (Snehasish Ganguly) also convinced me to return."

In concluding his statement, Tiwary said, "I'm coming out of retirement for one last year. Bengali cricket has given me everything. I want to give it one last try, be it as a player or captain."
