Everything is not going well for Chennai Super Kings before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the world’s largest cricket league. Ever since 13 members, including two of their players, have turned out to be Corona positive, the team’s troubles have not been named. These troubles also include the sudden return of India to the team’s star batsman and vice-captain Suresh Raina. However, after reaching India, Raina hoped that he could join the CSK team once again. But there is a new twist in the whole affair which makes it difficult for Raina to return to the IPL.
According to an English website Inside Sports, Raina has been dropped from CSK’s WhatsApp group after he left the team. However, the team management which also has SS Dhoni, Coach Fleming and CEO are in touch with them and are looking for a way back. Earlier, when 13 members, including two CSK players, were found to be Kovid positive, Raina had decided to return to India, which surprised everyone.
There are several reasons for Raina’s withdrawal from the team. It includes attacks on the family, room sparring with Dhoni and Corona virus-positive cases in the team, but Raina cites the tournament as a personal reason. Recently, Suresh Raina said in a conversation with Cricbuzz, that he is like a father to him. He always stood up for me. He is close to my heart. He treats me like his younger son. I think people have misinterpreted their words. A father can scold his child. He did not know why I returned before commenting. Now I have told them. After that my message has also come to me. We talked about it and CSK and I want to come out of this myself. ”
Please tell that if Suresh Raina withdraws from the IPL, then the team will have to suffer a lot of loss. Raina is one of the highest run-scorer in IPL history. He has scored more than 5000 runs for the team so far. Among the batsmen who have scored the most runs, only Team India captain Virat Kohli is above Raina. He has scored almost 50 runs more than Raina, which shows how little difference there is between the two players.
Chennai Superkings (CSK) owner N. Suresh Raina is like a son to Srinivasan and on Wednesday said that the decision on this all-rounder’s return to the team will be taken by the team management led by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Last week, Raina returned from CSK’s camp in Dubai after 13 cases of Kovid-19, including national team pacer Deepak Chahar. The former chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was initially angry at Raina’s departure, but later relented.
The player also appears to have spoken to Srinivasan and indicated that he might return to the camp, stating him as a father. Srinivasan said, ‘I think of him like a son. The reason for the team’s success in the IPL is that the franchise has never bumped its nose in cricket matters. India Cements has been running cricket since the 60s. I will always be like this. So does he expect Raina to return to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and play in the IPL? So the former head of the International Cricket Council (ICC) said, “Look, please understand that he is not in my jurisdiction (whether Raina returns or not).” He said, ‘We are the owners of the team, we are the owners of the franchise but we are not the owners of the players. The team is ours but not the players. I do not own the players.
Srinivasan says that the decision on Raina will be taken by the team management, which means captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Chief Executive Officer KS Vishwanathan. He said, ‘I am not a cricket captain. I never told him (team management) who to feed, who to auction, and never. We have an all-time great captain. So why should I interfere in cricket matters?
Cricketer Suresh Raina has said about the attack on his aunt’s family that what happened to his family in Punjab is beyond frightening. He said that he does not even know who carried out the attack. Raina, who left the IPL in Dubai due to an attack on the family and returned to the country, told via Twitter what his family has gone through in the last few days. He has sought help from Punjab Police and Chief Minister Amarinder Singh.
Raina tweeted, “What happened in Punjab with my family is beyond terrible.” My uncle was murdered. Both my aunt and my cousin were seriously injured. Unfortunately my cousin also died last night while struggling for life. My aunt’s condition is critical and she is on life support. ”
Raina wrote in another tweet, “To this day, we do not know what exactly happened that night and who did it?” I appeal to the Punjab Police to investigate the matter. At least let us know who committed this heinous crime. Those criminals should not be spared for committing further crimes. ”In the tweet, he has also tagged Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and CMO Punjab.
Significantly, in the Pathankot district of Punjab, Suresh Raina’s aunt’s house was attacked in Punjab, in which 58-year-old Ashoka Kumar, his uncle, was killed, four family members were injured. After receiving this information, Raina went back home to play IPL in Dubai. Based on the initial information, the police had said that Ashok Kumar and his family members were attacked by a gang of ‘Kale Kachchewala’ dacoits. At that time, they were all sleeping on the roof of the house. Ashok Kumar died on the spot due to head injury while four others were injured.
The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team suffered another major setback ahead of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The team’s star cricket Suresh Raina has returned to India due to personal reasons and will not be able to play in the 13th season of IPL.
Suresh Raina reached Dubai with the rest of the team on 21 August. The official Twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings tweeted a statement from CSK CEO KS Vishwanathan, which wrote, ‘Suresh Raina has returned to India due to personal reasons. He will not be available for the rest of the IPL season. Raina and her family will get full support from CSK. Earlier, the quarantine period of the team has been extended due to a bowler from CSK’s team and some members of the support staff being found positive in the Kovid-19 Test. CSK’s team will now be quarantined till 1 September, while almost all the other franchise teams have started practice sessions.
The franchise team has not yet issued any formal statement, but an IPL source said the number of positive cases is between 10 and 12. A league source said that the results of all the positive tests of Kovid-19 came on the first, third and sixth days of the team’s arrival here. A senior IPL source said on condition of confidentiality, “Yes, apart from a right-arm medium pacer playing for India recently, some franchise members of the franchise have come out positive in the Kovid-19 investigation. This figure can be up to 12. ‘ He said, “As far as we have come to know, apart from senior officials associated with CSK management and his wife, at least two members of the franchise’s social media team are also vulnerable to Corona virus.”
BCCI also in panic
After this incident, the isolation period of Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team has been extended till 1 September. There is panic in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the incident, but it is understood that there is currently no threat to the league, which is being held in the UAE due to the Corona epidemic. Looking at the schedule of the last two years of the IPL, the first match is between the teams playing finals last year, according to which the league’s first match this year will be between CSK and champions Mumbai Indians. However, it is not yet clear whether CS will be ready for the first match to be held on September 19.
The challenge will be to find the people in contact
According to the BCCI’s SOP, anyone positive in the Kovid-19 test will have to remain in isolation for seven days. After this period, it will be allowed to enter the Bio Secure Environment only if it is negative in the investigation. No symptoms are found among the members found positive, but detection of those exposed to them will be a challenge as most are believed to be infected by the virus in Chennai, where a small training before Dubai departs The camp was organized. Only those found negative will be allowed to enter the bio bubble.
So is BCCI upset with CSK?
The league source said, “In Chennai, they all came negative in the RT-PCR test of Kovid-19. If they were positive, they would not have left for UAE from there. It is understood that the team will not be able to start practice from 1 September. He said, ‘I don’t think the team will be able to start practice from 1 September. It will take at least till September 5 to start the camp, ” he said. However, there is resentment in the BCCI’s corridors for organizing the team’s camp in Chennai. There are over four lakh cases of corona virus in Tamil Nadu. It is not yet known whether the BCCI will issue an official statement with the names of the players and staff members. Earlier, Rajasthan Royals’ fielding coach Dishant Yagnik was found to be Corona positive in India.
Suresh Raina, who was a partner of all career ups and downs with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, also supported him in the decision to say goodbye to international cricket. Following his favorite captain and mentor Dhoni, Raina announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday (15 August). After former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also written a long letter for Suresh Raina. In this letter, he called Raina young.
