India international Suresh Raina has been away from the national team for quite some time now. He last donned the India jersey in 2018 during the ODI series between India and England. A poor show with the willow led to Raina being dropped from the Indian side.

Despite being on the sidelines since 2018, the left-hander is still hopeful of paving his way into the national side. Raina, an integral part of Chennai Super Kings, will be aiming to deliver in the UAE and increasing his chances of an international comeback.

Ardent CSK fans are waiting to see Raina, as well as skipper MS Dhoni, to brace the field in IPL 2020. Similar to Raina, Dhoni also has been away from the field since India’s oust in 2019 World Cup. Both the veterans are expected to deliver in this year’s IPL and return back to the national setup soon.

The left-hander already had his daughter Gracia’s name tattooed on his arm. Raina took to his official Instagram handle and captioned the post, “They give me a reason to live”.

Raina, amid the pandemic, has been quite active on social media. Along with sharing awareness, the 33-year-old has also shared training videos with his fans. Raina was a vital part of India’s squad in 2011 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy. Being the top-scorer for CSK, ‘Chinna Thala’ will be hopeful of having a stellar season this time too.

Both Raina and Dhoni are expected to play a vital role in CSK’s plans of clinching their fourth IPL title. The MS Dhoni-led side had lost the trophy last year after losing against Mumbai Indians in the final. Recently, Raina had also opened up on speculations about Dhoni’s international future. Raina had stated that age doesn’t come in the way of Ranchi stalwart due to his exemplary fitness levels. Raina had termed Dhoni a ‘natural athlete’.
