Things have not been looking good for Chennai Super Kings this year ahead of the Indian Premier League 2020. At least 13 members tested COVID-19 positive from their contingent, and then star player Suresh Raina set foot for India, leaving everyone befuddled. Firstly it was in talks that he left the team stating ‘personal reasons’, but gradually more details started surfacing, and no one could reason out his abrupt departure.

While many speculated that the murder of his close relative in Pathankot could be the reason, others said he was possibly scared of coronavirus spread in his camp. He was someone who kept family before everything, and related concern pushed him to fly back to India. However, according to the latest reports of Outlook, the CSK cricketer had an issue with the allotted hotel room. It was because of this he was in a rift with CSK management.

In the same light, CSK owner N Srinivasan criticised the 33-year-old Raina heavily. He has used strong words like ‘prima donna’, and stated that ‘fame has gone to his head’. Whatever be the reason, fans are not supporting the ugly side of this matter and are standing with Suresh Raina.

Here’s how Twitterati supported Suresh Raina-

Fans even don’t believe that a selfless player like Raina would do something rash and the CSK star might have chosen self-respect over money and glamour this time. Srinivasan also stated that he is not realising what he is losing from the monetary point of view. The whopping amount of Rs 11 crore, which was Raina’s salary for the fancy tournament, is a hefty amount.

The 33-year old has been an integral part of the team since the inception of IPL. He was known for playing stunning knocks, especially in this format of the game, and his sudden departure has created a huge void for the Yellow Army at the no 3-batting position.

Raina announced his retirement from international cricket along with MS Dhoni on August 15, which happened to be India’s 74th Independence Day. Raina is currently the second-highest run-scorer in the history of the IPL after Virat Kohli.
