Chennai Super Kings’ batting stalwart, Suresh Raina is all geared up to join the CSK camp for the upcoming edition of IPL. The southpaw opted out of the last year’s IPL due to personal reasons.
In his absence, CSK showcased their worst performance in IPL history. They finished at the seventh position in the table.
Suresh Raina’s presence in this year’s IPL will come as a major boost to the yellow Army. The Southpaw has been the backbone to CSK’s batting line up.
On Wednesday, CSK shared a video where Raina was seen hitting all his trademark shots. Reacting to the video, the franchise wrote:
“In awe of the southpaw! #ChinnaThala- Coming Soon with #WhistlePodu #Yellove,” CSK tweeted.
In response, Raina wrote, “Super excited and eagerly waiting to come to our den.”
Skipper, MS Dhoni has already begun his preparations for the upcoming edition. CSK, this year have made three notable inclusions in Moeen Ali, Cheteshwar Pujara and K Gowtham. It remains to be seen if Chennai Super Kings produce a similar performance as last year or turn their fortunes around.
