Chennai Super Kings batsman Suresh Raina is preparing hard for the upcoming IPL 2021. The southpaw is currently in UAE with the CSK team and sweating it hard for the tournament. After the practice sessions, Raina was seen in a fun mood as he turned WWE fighter John Cena and tackled KM Asif into the swimming pool.
The former India batsman posted a video on social media, displaying some WWE moves with teammate KM Asif. “That is name is John Cena. My name is Suresh Raina. @asif_km_24 #funtime #postpractice #instagood,” Raina posted on his Instagram account.

Raina looked in fine form during the first leg of the IPL 2021 and CSK would be hoping he plays a major role in the batting department in the UAE-leg of IPL 2021 as well. Raina has an incredible record in the IPL, scoring 5,491 runs with 1 hundred and 39 fifties and a strike rate of 136.89.
MS Dhoni’s CSK after a debacle performance in IPL 2020, started brilliantly in the 2021 season and are currently in the second position in IPL 2021 standings.
Last month in an interview, Raina had expressed his desire to win the IPL 2021 with Dhoni and called him his big brother.
“We’ve played a lot of matches for India as well as CSK. He has played almost 200 matches for India and for CSK. I think it’s just the emotion and on top of that, we have that respect for each other. I have learned a lot from him, and he is like a big brother to me.
“We have won a lot of trophies together and have lost a lot of finals as well, but I think the belief, the respect we have for each other is immense. And that’s what everyone loves about it (our bond),” Raina added.
