A new question arrived in the Indian Premier League before it’s commencement and the bizarre controversy is that will Suresh Raina retained by Chennai Super Kings management? Or Mr.IPL would leave CSK? This question will he running in every fan’s mind.
His unexpected exit from the IPL-2020 made him into bunch of controversy that are still in the hunt to know. It is also known that Raina was having a contract of Rs11 Cr and if management retains him then it will reduce the bidding amount for them and thus it will effect many players. By retaining him, management cant decrease the contract amount which will be huge consequences for them. Chennai Super Kings is the only team which definitely needs a proper team-up as there disastrous season depicts all of that.
“CSK has to take a big call on Rains. No doubt he has contributed a lot to the CSK’s success in past. As the team is revamping itself to pay or block 11Cr from 85Cr total pay purse is something which may pinch the yellow army. That is the reason they are deliberating hard on the same”. Quoted by source close to CSK.
On the other note the CSK Management will definitely look on the performances of Raina in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Till in four matches, Raina has best score against Punjab with 56 unbeaten.

The performance yet is not convincing to re think him on retaining ahead of IPL-2021. Till yet, Suresh Raina has earned a whooping amount of Rs 88.9Cr in IPL and is also considered in the highest earned players. Right now MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the only players to earn more than 100Cr in IPL while if Raina gets the contract of 11Cr then he will be the fourth player to achieve this feat.
His stats has been impressive in the IPL as he scored 5368 runs in 193 matches yet and placed on second place behind Virat Kohli who has 5878 runs.
