Mr. IPL Suresh Raina has been opted himself out from the entire season of the Indian Premier League 2020 due to personal reason. There after, Chennai Super Kings fans want to know that who will play at number 3 in Suresh Raina’s absence. Now former CSK coach L Sivaramakrishnan suggests CSK to play England player Sam Curran at number 3.
“In T20s, most teams employ leg-spinners to trouble the right-handers. But then, a left-hander could negotiate with leggies easily. So the loss of such an established batsman like Raina would hurt CSK,” L Sivaramakrishnan told Times of India.
“But they have a utility player in Sam Curran and could send the southpaw up the order. He can bat at No. 3 and give CSK those useful runs. Over the years, we have also seen Dhoni preferring left-arm pacers. Curran can come in handy since he can swing the ball in the air and is a very enthusiastic fielder,” he added.
Chennai Super kings haven’t announced any replacement of Suresh Raina.
Indian Premier League 2020 will kick start from September 19 and the final will take place on November 10. The Entire 13th season of the Indian premier League 2020 will take place in the UAE. But BCCI hasn’t finalised the schedule. All the teams are waiting for the full schedule of the IPL 2020.
“We have obtained all necessary permissions for the IPL matches in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. The teams can travel and they need not be quarantined. Of course, those coming from outside may have to undergo quarantine but those who are already there need not worry over the travel,” an ECB official told Mirror.
BCCI May announce the full schedule of IPL 2020 in next few days.
