Suresh Raina is one of the key players in the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK). He has already gone to the United Arab Emirates to play in the current edition of the IPL. However, the batting all-rounder has returned to the country without playing in the IPL due to personal reasons.
CSK CEO Kashi Bishwanath has confirmed that Raina will not play in the IPL.
"Suresh Raina has returned to the country for personal reasons, he will not be available for the rest of the IPL this year. At this time, Chennai will have the full support of Suresh and his family. ”
Raina's return to India is another big blow for Chennai. After the coronavirus test, at least 10 members of the team reportedly tested positive last Thursday. According to Indian media, one of them is an Indian cricketer and the rest are net bowlers and support staff.
Raina, who said goodbye to international cricket on August 15, was a great success in the IPL. The left-arm batsman is one of the most successful batsmen in Chennai. Only Virat Kohli has more runs in the IPL than him.
