Shukla is returning to cricket after six years of politics. Former Bengal captain and all-rounder Trinamool retired from all forms of cricket in 2016 to join the Congress. Shukla became a MLA from Howrah (North) and later served as Sports Minister. Before the last assembly election, he said goodbye to politics to focus on cricket.
