Suresh Raina is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in Indian Premier League. Also known as Chinna Thala for his long-term association with Chennai Super Kings, the left-handed batsman has been an integral part of the successful Yellow Army since the first season in 2008. However, CSK did not bid for him in IPL 2022 mega auction and as Raina got unsold, it was an end of era.
The fans just could not accept the fact that Mr. IPL, who scored 5528 runs in 205 IPL matches, would not be a part of tournament going ahead. While many people had also expressed their disappointment to CSK after the auctions, things started to calm down and everyone started to move on.
However, with less than 1 month left for IPL 2022 season to begin, Suresh Raina has started to trend again which has caught everyone by surprise. And the reason behind the same is nothing short of sensational!
Suresh Raina in IPL 2022?
After Gujarat Titans' opener Jason Roy pulled out of the upcoming season in order to spend time with his family, the netizens have flooded the social media platform with posts suggesting the franchise to sign Suresh Raina as Roy's replacement.
Notably, Raina was the captain of Gujarat Lions when the last time a franchise based from the state was part of IPL in 2016 and 2017. With a veteran like him available, who is also loved in Gujarat, this could indeed be one of the most amazing signings of IPL 2022 if it goes ahead.
