The left-handed Suresh Raina has been a vital cog in the success of the Chennai Super Kings. Southpaw Raina has never scored less than 350 runs in a single season of the tournament, with the left-hander being the mainstay for the Super Kings. In the field as well, Raina’s athletic self-has helped the team in saving a few runs and picking up massive wickets.
Off-the-field, Raina in an Interview with The Sportstar during the inauguration of an Asics store talked about the various elements in the dressing room. The first question that was posted in front of the left-hander was ‘Who is the best entertainer in the team’, and the answer as expected by the fans is Dwayne Bravo.
With his new single, ‘Run D World’, Dwayne Bravo has not only hit the music charts but also has found a way to connect with more fans across the border. His quirky dance movements have also found a place in the hearts of the Super Kings’ fans.
Who talks a lot, Raina?
Further, Raina revealed that the left-handed all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is the most talkative person in the team. The left-hander had a stunning game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore where he knocked Virat Kohli cold on the back-foot with his straighter delivery.
According to Raina, there is no boring person in the dressing room and also said no one reads a lot in the dressing room. A shocking statement that Raina revealed was that everyone in the team is always with the earphones on at most times in the bus and in the aeroplane. Shane Watson is the only person to be always late to the bus, or to any place where the team meets.
Raina credits Watson for his on-time antics
Raina says that Shane Watson reaches the bus or the place only a minute or a couple of minutes before the stipulated time, unlike the other team members. Watson also likes to be on time at the right place, just like in the finals where his knock took the Super Kings home for the third time.
Englishman Sam Billings is the most notorious of the team-mates according to Raina, while Harbhajan is the person with most jokes. Best batsman in the dressing room, according to the left-hander is none other than teammate and skipper MS Dhoni.
The left-hander concludes the interview by saying that Sunrisers’ bowler Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is the most skilful bowler in the tournament despite the current popular choice for the place would be Afghanistan’s, Rashid Khan.
