Suresh Raina, was one of the most successful player in IPL and most loved cricketer for CSK fans gave us shocking news in Aug 28 2020 , from the Chennai Super Kings Ceo Kasi Viswanathan stating that “ Suresh Raina has returned to India for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the reminder of the IPL season. Chennai Super Kings offers complete support to Suresh and his family’.
After Suresh Raina left the camp,there are lot of rumours spread related to Csk management & Suresh Raina saying that he was worried about his family and not satisfied with the covid management rules in bio bubble and so on. Also at that same time 13 members of CSK support staff & two players of Chennai Super kings were affected due to Covid -19.
Then , N srinivasan Interview to outlook made csk fans to believe those rumours are true,then finally Raina’s Issue was solved after some point of time by raina himself . But after the consecutive back to back losses , Csk Fans believed that Raina’s absence in the middle order & playing 11 are two main reasons for these back to back loss. Everyone started commenting on Suresh Raina’s Instagram post related to his comeback in UAE. But he is unlikely to miss this IPL 2020 .
However, the recent news from Team management has confirmed that Suresh Raina will not be making a comeback to the CSK at least for this season. His name has been removed from the franchise’s official website from the team section. Stephen Fleming ,head coach of Csk also said Raina inclusion in the team will be completely dependent on the CSK management decision.
Also CSK Ceo, Kasi Viswanathan in a recent interview said that the team respects Suresh Raina’s personal space and had sort of confirmed that the side has moved on. Moreover, after losing two matches on the trot, the fans are missing their ‘Chinna Thala’. But Kasi has assured the fans that the team will bounce back strongly.“We cannot look at (Suresh) Raina because he made himself unavailable, and we respect his decision and his space. We are not thinking about it. I can assure the fans that we will bounce back strongly. It’s a game and you have your good and bad days. But the boys know what they need to do and the smiles will be back,”.
Also , practically if Suresh Raina had to come back to UAE he must be in quarantine for more than 14 days and need to pass the three covid test before travelling. So if he starts to travel in October , his quarantine days will end only in mid of october, after that there are only 5 matches for CSK.We cannot assure that he will start striking the bowlers early as he did not play cricket for more than a year, with all these aspects we might conclude that he will not be available for this year IPL 2020. But he worked heavily for this IPL, unfortunately no one knows the exact reason for his silence.But we can surely said that he is not the person to leave CSK ( as we can see his instagram stories on Faf Innings in sharjah ) , Hopefully we can assure that he will come back in next year IPL 2021 for CSK.
