It looks like hard times are coming for CSK after a series of weird incidents that took place in the team’s camp in the United Arab Emirates for the IPL. After more than 10 team members tested positive for Coronavirus, it looks like there is more bad news coming towards CSK, this time from Suresh Raina.
In the news for his shock exit from IPL 2020 citing personal reasons, Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) senior batsman Suresh Raina has opened up for the first time on all the controversy surrounding him. While terming CSK boss N. Srinivasan as a father figure, the 33-year-old dismissed all rumours of a rift over a hotel room as ‘fabricated’.
Chennai Super Kings owner N Srinivasan's statement that 'sometimes success gets into your head', in an interview on Sunday, grabbed a lot of eyeballs. Everyone connected it to Suresh Raina, who quit IPL 2020 due to personal reasons, even as reports of his alleged rift with MS Dhoni started doing the rounds.
Chennai Super King’s batting mainstay Suresh Raina pulled out of IPL 2020 citing “personal reasons”. He has returned to India already. It was confirmed by the franchise’s official twitter account. It was also mentioned in the tweet that CSK offers complete support to Raina and his family during this time. Raina is the highest run getter for CSK and also the second highest run getter in IPL of all time, next to only Virat Kohli. He has amassed 5368 runs in IPL in twelve seasons of IPL so far.
In a shocking development earlier today, senior Chennai Super Kings batsman Suresh Raina has pulled out of IPL 2020 citing personal reasons. Now, according to a report in Dainik Jagran, his uncle has passed away following a midnight attack in their village in Pathankot. The same report also added that his aunt is critical.
On 15th August, a big piece of news was about to breakout to cricket fans across the globe. India’s greatest wicketkeeper/finisher, and India’s one of the best T20 players were about to bid adieu to the game. Both of them had more than one thing in common. They made their India debuts around the same time, batted together on hundreds of occasions, have been an integral part of CSK setup since the inception of IPL, and are best friends off the field.
