Suresh Raina has made breaking news before the commencement of the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) as he refrained himself from playing for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Being the senior player of the franchise, he received major criticism. Also, the official CSK website removed Raina’s photo from their images session for the squad.
The reason for Raina leaving the game in the mid was his family tragedy and he considered his family members more prior to the game.
However, he has confirmed his availability for IPL 2021 and will resume competitive cricket by playing Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy.
Confirming his availability, Raina added that he will lead Uttar Pardesh in the domestic upcoming season.
Notably, Raina did not say if he will play for CSK or for any other franchise. CSK are less likely to pick him amidst the controversial statements that the owner earlier made. However, the scenario was handled later between the player and the management.
