You never know, you might see me again at CSK camp: Suresh Raina | Cricket news


NEW DELHI: Suresh Raina has said that Chennai Super Kings (CSK) boss N Srinivasan was initially unaware of the reasons behind the batsman’s decision to withdraw from the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL).
Raina had traveled to the UAE together with other CSK players, but last week, the CSK batsman withdrew from the next tournament for personal reasons.
Following Raina’s decision to return home, CSK chief N Srinivasan in an interview said that Raina was unhappy with the room provided to him at the CSK team hotel in Dubai and cited it as a possible reason for him to return to India. While Srinivasan later said he was quoted out of context, Raina has now said that as a father figure, the former head of the BCCI has every right to scold him.
“He is like a father figure to me and has always supported me and is close to my heart. He treats me like his youngest son and I’m 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), “Cricbuzz quoted Raina.
“He didn’t know the real reasons why I left when he made those comments. He has now been informed about them and even sent me a message thereafter. We talked about it and both CSK and I just want to end with,” he added.
CSK’s preparations for the upcoming tournament have been severely affected by COVID-19 cases at their camp.
When asked if his decision to return to India was based on the increase in coronavirus cases in the CSK camp, Raina replied: “It was heartbreaking of course. This is a very deadly disease and even after so many precautions if the staff get infected, they just say how bad it can be and it can happen to anyone. I hope everyone recovers soon. ”
However, the left-handed hitter has also hinted at a possible comeback for the team in this edition.
“I have been training even while I was quarantined here. You never know I could see myself at the camp there. It was a personal decision and I had to go back for my family. There was something that needed to be addressed immediately at CSK is my family too. and Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) is very important to me and this was a difficult decision, “he said.
The 2020 IPL is scheduled to be played from September 19 to November 10 at three locations in the United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai.
The left-handed hitter has been the most successful hitter for the Chennai Super Kings, scoring 5,368 runs in 193 games for the franchise with a 33.34 average.
