Suresh Raina is one of the backbones of the Chennai Super Kings. He has a big impact on CSK and is part of the franchise winning 3 IPL titles.
Known as Mr. IPL, Suresh Raina has been a key player in the Indian Premier League history. He did not feature for CSK during the 2020 edition that led to a disappointing performance by the yellow army.
Raina also cheekily suggested he could sleep peacefully if Ashwin was not around.”Kyuki bohot zyada baatien hoti hai kabhi kabhi. Cricket bohot zyada baat Karta hai. Flight mein you want to take nap, ya rest Karna hai. Waise he is a total gentleman, aisa nai hai but kabhi lagta hai aap gusse mein hai ya kuch karna hai to lagta hai agar aas pas Ashwin nahi hai to phir main so sakta hoon,” Raina answered.
Suresh Raina returned to form in the 2021 edition of IPL so far. He scored 54 in the opening match against Delhi Capitals but could not continue his form during the rest of the matches. Despite his lack of performance, CSK is currently 2nd in the points table.
The 2nd leg of the Indian Premier League is slated to start from 19th September in the United Arab Emirates. Chennai Super Kings will take on defending champions Mumbai Indians.
Raina said Delhi is a two-hour drive from Mudranagar the place he lives. He pointed out that Delhi is close to his home and that is the main reason he would like to play for Delhi Capitals instead of Chennai Super Kings.
“Delhi hai! Ghar bhi pass hai, Muradnagar se pass hai, aur kaafi dost hai us team mein. So, I’d prefer Delhi,” Raina said.
It promises to be a great 2nd leg in the United Arab Emirates with Delhi Capitals, CSK, RCB, and Mumbai Indians in the top four positions while KKR, RR, PBKS, and SRH are in the bottom four places.
