Suresh Raina’s Return To India And Exit From IPL 2020 Linked To Row Over Hotel Room

Highlights:

  • Suresh Raina reportedly left IPL 2020 because he was unhappy with his hotel room in UAE
  • Suresh Raina returned to India on the 29th of August
  • CSK CEO KS Viswanathan said Raina had returned due to “personal reasons”

Chennai Super Kings’ star player Suresh Raina had returned to India on the 20th of August and the Chief Executive of the franchise, KS Viswanathan, through the tweet posted on the official twitter handle of the team, that the star player would not be playing in the Indian Premier League 2020 which is set to begin from the 19th of September.

It was said that the left handed batsman has left the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to ‘personal reasons”, however, Viswanathan, in a tweet posted on the team’s official Twitter handle, also said that Raina would not be available for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 season.

However, a report has surfaced which is claiming that Suresh Raina was unhappy with the hotel room he was assigned and has demanded accommodation similar to that of the captain of Chennai Super Kings, M S Dhoni.

Speaking to Outlook, the owner of IPL franchise CSK who also served as the BCCI president in the past, N Srinivasan likened cricketers to “prima donnas” but said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni “was in complete control of the situation”.

Srinivasan said, “Cricketers are like prima donnas … like the temperamental actors of the olden days. Chennai Super Kings have always been like a family and all seniors players have learnt to co-exist,”.

He added, “My thinking is that if you are reluctant or not happy, go back. I don’t force anyone to do anything … sometimes success gets into your head,

“I spoke to MS (Dhoni) and he has assured me that even if the numbers go up, there was nothing to worry. He spoke to the players through a zoom call and asked them to remain safe. You really don’t know who is a passive carrier,

“The season has not begun yet and Raina will certainly realise what he is missing and certainly all the money (a salary of 11 crores per season) he is going to lose,” he said.

Chennai Super Kings have been affected by 9problem in IPL 2020 even before the tournament had started.
