Suresh Raina wants CSK to buy this player in IPL 2023

The Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful teams in the history of The Indian Premier League. But in the last 3 years there is a massive up and down in their success graph as CSK failed to qualify in the playoffs two times in the last 3 years though they also became champions once in these years. 2022 was the year when CSK for the first time failed to qualify for the playoffs and 2022 became the second. Though in 2021 CSK did a fantastic comeback by winning the trophy.

After the worst performance of CSK this year, winning only 4 matches out of 14 and finishing second last in the points table, the major reason that experts pointed out is CSK missed their great players. Deepak Chahar who was bought for 14 cr in the auction couldn’t play the IPL due to injury. CSK also had to release Faf before the IPL.

But netizens believe that the reason behind CSK’s failure might be the absence of Suresh Raina. Raina who’s been with CSK for many years and also played major role in the team’s success was declared “unfit for the team” and wasn’t bought back by CSK earlier in the auction. Raina was one of the most consistent players for CSK and backbone of their middle order. He is still the highest run-scorer for the franchise with 5529 runs in 195 innings. The batsman has played over 200 matches which makes him one of the most seasoned players of the tournament.

But recently Chennai Super Kings tweeted a picture of Raina with his exceptional knock of 87 off 25 balls against PBKS( earlier Kings 11 Punjab) back in the year 2014. Under which the left hander posts a cryptic tweet which excited the fans.

It is believed that the veteran wants CSK to buy him back in the IPL 2023. The tweet reads:
