New Delhi: CSK was the first team this year to reach the final of IPL 2021. This team, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, defeated Delhi Capitals in Qualifier One. This is CSK’s overall 9th IPL final. But there is a veteran player of CSK who has been associated with this team from the beginning but now his career has moved towards the end.
This player’s career is over
Chennai Super Kings senior batsman Suresh Raina has been going through poor form for some time now. Even in the first phase of IPL 2021, Raina was not able to perform much with his bat and in the second phase also he was dropped from the team due to poor performance of Raina. Raina has been out of the last few matches and Robin Uthappa, who came in his place in the team, has confirmed his place by performing brilliantly.
Can take retirement next season
34-year-old Suresh Raina had announced his retirement from international cricket when Dhoni had said goodbye to cricket. Things are not going well for Raina, so it may be that Suresh Raina can announce his retirement from IPL as soon as the season ends. With the kind of form Raina has shown this entire season, one thing is almost clear that he will not show any interest in buying any team next year. In such a situation, his IPL career is moving towards the end.
Such has been Raina’s career
Suresh Raina has scored 768 runs in Test cricket. This includes his one century and 7 half-centuries. Raina has played 226 ODIs in One Day Internationals, in which he has recorded 5615 runs, which includes 5 centuries and 36 half-centuries. Raina’s best score in ODI was 116 not out. Apart from this, if we talk about T20, then he has played 78 T20 matches, in which he has scored a total of 1605 runs, in T20, Raina has scored one century and five half-centuries.
