It was a big shock for once Mr. IPL Suresh Raina as the former India all-rounder is not picked by any team.
Suresh Raina who retired from international cricket in 2019 and since then he is only playing in the IPL.
Raina, who had a base price of Rs 2 crore, went unsold in an IPL auction for the first time in the history of the lucrative league. CSK did not even bid for him.
“Raina has been one of the most consistent performers for CSK for the last 12 years. Of course, it was very difficult for us, not to have Raina but at the same time, you should also understand that the team composition depends on the form and kind of team which any team would like to have so that’s one of the reasons why we thought he may not fit into this team,” Kasi said in a video shared by Chennai Super Kings on their YouTube channel on Monday.
On Faf du Plessis, he said “We will miss him, we will miss Faf who has been with us for the last decade, that’s the process and dynamics of the auction.”
