‘Mr. IPL’ Suresh Raina suddenly returned from UAE to India for personal reasons. Many speculations were being made in the media about Raina’s return.
- The concern of corona infection was stated to be the cause
- Srinivasan had listened fiercely then
- Srinivasan’s attitude changed in a single day
In the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp, which is suffering from the havoc of the Corona transition, is expected to resolve all differences. Due to the sudden return of India to Suresh Raina, the management of the Chennai team surrounded by controversies has raised the possibility of this legendary batsman returning to the team.
Just 24 hours ago, after raiding Raina for the controversy, former BCCI president and Chennai team’s mother company India Cement’s owner N. Srinivasan (N Srinivasan), now softening his stand, said that the doors of the team should always be open for him.
Praise for Raina’s contribution
Srinivasan spoke of his earlier statement being misrepresented by the media. In an interview to a newspaper, former ICC President Srinivasan said, Raina’s contribution to Chennai Super Kings is priceless. It is important to understand what circumstances they are going through at the moment and we should leave them a little different. When I said that ‘cricketers are like prima donnas’, I did not mean negative.
Let us know that Raina has been associated with the Chennai team since the first season and is just the second cricketer to score 5000+ runs, playing the most 193 matches in the IPL. Suresh Raina, the vice-captain of the Chennai team, had suddenly returned from the UAE, and the team had called it a comeback for personal reasons. But later it was revealed that Raina was not happy with the facilities she received.
Srinivasan had earlier said that Raina would repent
Srinivasan had earlier expressed his displeasure after Raina’s return. Then he said that if a cricketer is not happy then he should go back. He had praised MS Dhoni’s captaincy and said that Dhoni has handled the entire situation and assured the entire team on a video call that everything is safe.
Srinivasan further said that the season has not even started yet and Raina will definitely feel what he has missed. This includes all the money (Rs 11 crore) that they are going to lose. He had said that Dhoni’s leadership is strong and his ability to remain calm has benefited the team immensely over the years.
Told IPL Global Benchmark
IPL-2020 is being organized in UAE this time due to bad conditions due to Coronavirus in India. Despite two players from his team Chennai Super Kings and 11 support staff being found corona positive, Srinu is sure that the IPL is not in danger and the move to shift it to UAE will not go in vain.
