IPL’ 22: Why Was He Not Picked?
As a shock to everyone, Suresh Raina did not get picked in the auction for the 2022 IPL. He went unsold during the entirety of the auction.
Suresh Raina didn’t play in 2020 because of significant family issues that asked him to be absent from the game. He got dropped in 2021 by CSK as his performance was degrading significantly with time.
This made the other franchises hesitant not to bid for Mr. IPL.
The CEO for CSK opened up the reason as to why he did not get picked?
“Raina has been one of the most consistent performers for CSK for the last 12 years. Of course, it was challenging for us not to have Raina, but at the same time, you should also understand that the team composition depends on the form and kind of team which any team would like to have.”
The Fans are quoting this to be the end of an era as Mr. IPL won’t be seen in the IPL playing for their favorite team.
