Chennai Super Kings franchise tweeted on Saturday and said Suresh Raina has returned to India due to personal reasons and will miss the entire IPL 2020 season.
CSK CEO KS Viswanathan was quoted as saying on the team’s official Twitter handle that “Suresh Raina has returned to India for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the remainder of the IPL season. Chennai Super Kings offers complete support to Suresh and his family during this time.”
The man who rarely misses any IPL match is now completely left out of the game for his personal reason. Suresh Raina was the key member of the team and has been an integral part of the CSK team from the very beginning, and his departure will come as a massive blow to the side.
Mr IPL Raina recently announced his retirement from international cricket alongside his CSK and India teammate MS Dhoni. He is the highest scorer for CSK in the IPL with 5,368 runs and second-highest overall after Virat Kohli‘s 5,412.
The upcoming IPL 2020 season is set to begin on September 19 in Dubai with Chennai Super Kings taking on defending champions Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener.
CSK team is facing so many problems even before the tournament has started.
CSK’s preparations for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) hit a snag after it emerged that a bowler and some staff members of the franchise tested positive for COVID-19.
They all get quarantine in Dubai and all frustrated. However, the actual reason for Suresh Raina to come back to India is still unknown.
