On August 15, 2020, former India cricketer and the winner of CWC and Champions Trophy, Suresh Raina declared his retirement from all forms of cricket. In any case, since his retirement went with that of MS Dhoni, nobody minded a lot and all the spotlight remained on MSD.
Gradually after retirement, Raina lost all the self-assurance he once had and scored only 160 runs off 12 innings (at an average of 17.8) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. He didn’t come to the playing eleven in certain games for the season, and he wasn’t held for the 2022 IPL. One time of unfortunate structure, ultimFans Excited for Suresh Rainaately, ended up being enough for Mr. IPL to be dismissed by every single establishment (counting CSK) in 2022 IPL mega auction, Suresh Raina unfortunately went unsold.
Yet, presently, pictures of Raina doing batting practice in Ghaziabad have arisen, flagging a mighty comeback. Two significant explanations have been guessed up to this point by the fans. Hereon, SportsTime247 talks about the two of them.
Return to the IPL as Mr.IPL
The most reasonable clarification is that Suresh Raina is focusing on an IPL return. Perhaps the best player in the association’s set of experiences, the left-hander is too great to be in any way disregarded for successive seasons. The Duleep Trophy (FC competition) is planned for September 7 to 25. Following that, restricted overs competitions in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) and Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022-23 are to be held.
On the off chance that Suresh can show his huge hitting abilities in the SMAT and Vijay Hazare Trophy, it is practically 100% sure that various IPL establishments will pursue him in the 2023 IPL sell off. Since Suresh Raina isn’t globally dynamic any longer, Domestic exhibitions are the best way to intrigue IPL establishments.
Retirement from IPL to play different associations
The other conceivable explanation is the left-hander searching for open doors somewhere else and retiring from the Indian Premier League. The Legends League Cricket (LLC) begins from 17 September and Gautam Gambhir has proactively declared his return for it.
Suresh Raina isn’t generally so elder as Gambhir and different cricketers that will play in the LLC. Be that as it may, a spot ought to be accessible assuming that he’s decided to move from the IPL. Universally, there are different open doors as well: Big Bash League (BBL), The Hundred, Caribbean CPL, and the impending SA T20 League.
Customary cricket is accessible in such unfamiliar associations, and a touch of cash is likewise there to be made. The BCCI can give Suresh Raina the authorisation and No Object Certificate (NOC) to play in different nations on the off chance that he is to said farewell to the IPL.
It is actually the case that this choice is less down to globally. In any case, the BBL and SA T20 association are yet to settle their 2022 crews, so one can’t call it unimaginable.
