In the last IPL, Suresh Raina, who suddenly returned from the UAE, left CSK in the middle and surprised the cricket fans. Many questions were raised about the future of his IPL. But, before IPL 2021, those questions have got their answers too. And, the biggest answer is that Suresh Raina will still be associated with CSK in IPL. That too with a new and very expensive contract.
Yes, Suresh Raina’s contract with Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2021 has catapulted him to a club of 100 crores. That is, Raina will also be a part of the club where there is already a big name like Dhoni, Rohit Virat and de Villiers among foreign stars.
11 crores agreement for new season
According to an report by InsideSport, the deal has been finalized for the 14th season of IPL at Suresh Raina and Chennai Super Kings for Rs 11 crore. In this way, their total earnings from IPL will be more than Rs 100 crore. Raina will be the fourth Indian cricketer after Dhoni, Rohit and Virat to have earned so much money from IPL.
Raina’s faded game before IPL 2021
Before IPL 2021, Suresh Raina appeared in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. In this tournament, his team failed to reach the Uttar Pradesh quarter-finals. At the same time, Raina’s performance was also not much special. He was able to score only 1 half-century in 5 matches of the tournament. It is clear that Raina’s form does not look right before IPL 2021. However, it should also not be forgotten that he is one of the most successful batsmen in the Indian Premier League.
