The Chinna Thalla is the backbone of the CSK franchise. Suresh has been the top scorer for the franchise and has contributed in every way possible. Along with MSD, Suresh Raina enjoys a great fan following and fans look forward seeing him play good cricket.
Moreover after announcing his retirement, fans were really hoping to again witness his greatness on the field. However on 28th August, Suresh Raina returned back to India and made himself unavailable for this edition of the IPL after 13 members of the camp were tested Covid-19 positive.

This news was a great shock for the franchise as well as fans. Suresh Raina, is one of the biggest names in IPL and his presence helps the franchise and the tournament in many ways, specially in terms of grabbing eyeballs.
Many controversies surfaced since this news broke out. N. Srinivasan said, “The season has not begun yet and Raina will certainly realise what he is missing and certainly all the money he is going to lose,” due to this the India Cements Owner faced a lot of backlash by Raina fans.
However Srinivasan later clarified that his statement was taken out of context, and CSK always stands by Suresh Raina. Now in a recent interview with Cricbuzz the Cricketer said, “He is like a father figure to me and he’s always stood by me and is close to my heart. He treats me like his younger son and am sure a lot of what he said was taken out of context. Ek baap apne bacche ko daant sakta hai(A father can scold his son). He didn’t know the real reasons for me leaving when he gave those comments. Now he’s been informed about them and he even sent me a message thereafter. We’ve chatted about it and both CSK and I just want to get over with it.”
Not only this, Suresh also hinted about returning back to CSK camp and playing for the team. He said, “I’ve been training even while quarantining here. You never know you might see me in the camp there again”.
There has been many reasons of Suresh’s return, one of them is the brutal attack on Suresh Raina’s family in Pathankot. The Cricketer lost his uncle and cousin and was highly disturbed by this incident.
However if Suresh Raina marks a comeback to the team, it will surely be a great news for all the cricket fans. All the negativity surrounding the team and the tournament will turn into positivity. It would be interesting to see what decision the all rounder makes ?
