Chennai Super Kings superstar Suresh Raina has decided to back out of the 13th season of IPL and has returned to India due to personal reasons.
The official page of the franchise on Saturday morning tweeted:
“Suresh Raina has returned to India for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the remainder of the IPL season. Chennai Super Kings offer complete support to Suresh and his family during this time.
KS Viswanathan CEO”
Suresh Raina has already announced his retirement from all the formats of International Cricket along with former captain of Indian Cricket Team and his CSK teammate MS Dhoni.
Raina has made an unbroken record of scoring 5,368 runs for CSK and second highest in overall IPL after Virat Kohli who scored 5,412 runs and was the first fielder in IPL to take 100 catches.
CSK is indeed facing a lot of challenges even before the tournament has started. On Friday 28th August, ten of the staff members and a pacer of the franchise has been tested COVID-19 Positive. As the result, the entire team was told to stop the preparations of the tournament and their quarantine period has been extended till September 1.
