Suresh Raina stunned everyone on Saturday after opting out of IPL 2020 due to personal reasons. According to reports, he was terrified after hearing about 13 CSK members testing COVID-19 positive. However, if the latest reports are to be believed, Raina even had a tussle with skipper MS Dhoni over the room which he was allotted.

Raina was reportedly unhappy with the hotel room he was given since his arrival. He was finding it hard to abide by the strict protocols of the bio-bubble. He was feeling claustrophobic and wanted a similar room like MS Dhoni which had a proper balcony.

Meanwhile, many franchises including Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore have started IPL 2020 preparations. Both franchises shared pictures and photos of their players sweating it out in their outdoor practice sessions.

Many fans reacted to the outcome of the second T20I encounter between England and Pakistan. Visitors Pakistan, after amassing a dominant 195-run total on the board, were in pole position to clinch the victory. However, England, on the back of batting contributions from Eoin Morgan (66), Dawid Malan (54*) and Jonny Bairstow (44) hunted down the target with five deliveries to spare.
