The speculations sign towards different paths for Suresh Raina and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as one of the sources has counted it as impossible to feature in the next season after being already retired and missing in the recent season. The official hopes Raina might be picked by any other franchise in the next auction.
It was the player’s personal choice to depart from the UAE to India after he heard of a tragedy that happened with his family at Punjab. The player tweeted that the family is prior to anything.
His departure has left the management, co, and the fans in a shock. Also, it might be a massive blow for CSK as already, more than ten contestants of Dhoni’s leading side has been tested COVID-19 positive and are under isolation.
The side is given more time for its wellbeing as revealed by one of BCCI’s officials and might miss on the initial matches. However, Raina is to miss the massive amount and his owner believes that he will regret losing 11 crores.
CSK to depart ways with Suresh Raina
”It looks highly improbable that someone who has retired and likely won’t play any cricket will come back for CSK. Maybe, he will be back in the auction and someone else might pick him,” A source said (Tweeted by Circle of Cricket).
“Cricketers are like prima donnas … like the temperamental actors of the olden days. Chennai Super Kings have always been like a family and all seniors players have learned to co-exist. My thinking is that if you are reluctant or not happy, go back. I don’t force anyone to do anything … sometimes success gets into your head,” Srinivasan said.
”The season has not begun yet and Raina will certainly realize what he is missing and certainly all the money (a salary of 11 crores per season) he is going to lose,” says N Srinivasan.
