New Delhi: The performance of Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021 has been excellent. It has become the first team to reach the playoffs this season. Most of the cricketers of ‘Yellow Army’ have tried to give their best. Still, there is a batsman who has a great record in the history of this tournament, but nowadays his bat is silent. If this situation continues, then it is obvious that it will become a source of trouble for them. Let us throw light on the performance of that star cricketer.
Stars of ‘Mr IPL’
With time, the shine of star cricketer Suresh Raina has faded. In IPL 2021, he has not contributed much for his team on most occasions. In this season, he has played 11 matches so far and has scored 157 runs at an average of 19.62 and strike rate of 127.64.

Will not wear yellow jersey next year!
There will be a mega auction of players before IPL 2022. If Suresh Raina fails to show his mettle in the remaining matches, then it is very likely that Chennai Super Kings will not retain him for the next season, because apart from MS Dhoni, CSK also have many retentions. Claimants exist.
Raina’s stars in the sky
If this situation continues, this can prove to be the last IPL season for Suresh Raina, as he has failed to generate hope for the team with his performance this year. Even if the other team buys him, it is difficult to say whether he will get a chance in the playing XI.
