I am also a Brahmin: Raina
On this Suresh Raina said, ‘I think, I am also a Brahmin. I have been playing in Chennai since 2004. I love the culture here. I love my comrades. I have played with Anirudh Srikkanth. Badri (Subramaniam Badrinath), Bala Bhai (L Balaji) are also there. I think you need to learn something good from there. We have a good administration. I love the culture of Chennai and am lucky to be a part of CSK’.

@ImRaina you should be ashamed of yourself.
It seems that you have never experienced real Chennai culture though you have been playing many years for Chennai team. https://t.co/ZICLRr0ZLh

Hi Raina and Ravindra, you can glorify your Dwij cast. It’s a glorification of the Varna System. But how would a Shudra & an untouchable glorify their Varna? @ImRaina @imjadeja pic.twitter.com/X9Xe331eAf
