CSK superstar Suresh Raina has revealed the cover of his new book BELIEVE which chronicles the lessons from his cricketing journey. Raina, who etched the word "Believe" as a tattoo on his arm after cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar told him to have faith in his own talent, announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15, 2020. Raina recently made a comeback to the IPL cricket with a brilliant half-century.

Check out Raina’s announcement right here:

Had opted out of IPL 2020 citing personal reasons

Notably, Raina was all set to feature in IPL 2020 but decided to pull out days before the start of the tournament citing personal reasons. In his absence, CSK had their worst outing in the tournament, failing to make it to the Playoffs and finishing 7th on the eight-team table.

With Raina back in Yellow and firing like he did in the first match against DC, CSK are hoping to have a strong comeback in the tournament.

MS Dhoni departed for a duck against DC

Meanwhile, Raina’s dear friend MS Dhoni will also be key to Chennai’s chances this year. While Dhoni managed just 200 runs last season, he departed for a duck against DC in the first match this year. Along with Raina, Chennai fans would hope that MSD finds his form quickly and starts powering his team to wins more consistently, not only in terms of captaincy and his keeping behind the wickets but also with the bat in typical Mahi style.
