New Delhi: Chennai Super Kings senior player Suresh Raina has been going through poor form for some time now. Even in the first phase of IPL 2021, Raina was not able to perform anything special with his bat and in the second phase also Raina is not able to prove himself. Meanwhile, Sanjay Manjrekar has given a big statement on Suresh Raina.
Manjrekar wants to oust Raina
Sanjay Manjrekar is very active on social media. Through this, he has raised questions on Raina’s batting. He said, ‘I think CSK may need to make at least one change in Abu Dhabi, because the spinners are expected to get help on this wicket. I want Karan Sharma to get a place in this team and play Jadeja as a specialist batsman. Against KKR, I would like to drop Suresh Raina from the playing XI.
Raina is running in poor form
Talking about the second phase of IPL 2021, Suresh Raina is proving to be a flop continuously. In the third match against KKR, he had a chance to prove himself but he failed and returned to the pavilion after scoring 11 runs in 7 balls. Raina’s bat remained calm in the first match of the second leg as well. He scored just 4 runs in 6 balls against Mumbai. In such a situation, Raina’s constant flop can become a big weakness of CSK. Due to which there is a demand to drop him from the team.
Will Raina retire after this season?

There are reports that this season will be Dhoni’s last IPL, things are not going well for Raina too, so it may be that Suresh Raina can announce his retirement from IPL as soon as the season ends.
