CSK CEO reveals whether Raina will play IPL 2020 at all

Suresh Raina’s absence is being severely felt by Chennai Super Kings who got their second consecutive defeat in two games. After getting their IPL 2020 campaign off on a promising note with a win against Mumbai Indians, CSK suffered back to back defeats to Rajasthan Royals and later Delhi Capitals on Friday. The defeat has prompted fans to clamour for Raina’s return, who returned home ahead of the season due to personal reasons.

There has been plenty of talk regarding a possible Raina return, possibly during the latter phase of the season. With only seven games played, the IPL 2020 is still in its early stages and CSK have a long road ahead. Having said that, the question remains: Will Raina come back to play the IPL? There is only one man who can provide a definitive answer – CEO of the franchise Kasi Viswanathan.

However, in what may be a not be encouraging news for CSK and Raina fans, Viswanathan did not look too optimistic about Raina’s chances to return, at least not in the ongoing season of the IPL.

Raina’s absence has put CSK in a quandary. Raina has always been the designated No. 3 batsman for CSK over the years and with him not around this season, the team has used Faf du Plessis at the position. The South Africa batsman hasn’t disappointed, putting up two half-centuries to go with a knock of 43. But the failure of CSK’s batsmen to attain momentum early on has raised certain eyebrows.
