New Delhi: CSK, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has performed well in IPL 2021. Now this team is considered to be the biggest contender to win this year’s title. CSK, who were out of the playoff race last year, made it to the last four first this time. But let us tell you that there is a veteran batsman who has become the biggest weakness for CSK.
This player has increased tension
Suresh Raina, who was one of their most legendary batsmen at this time for CSK, has created a lot of trouble. Raina comes to bat at number 3 and the player who bats at this number is the biggest strength of the team. Yesterday also against Rajasthan Royals, Raina returned after scoring just 3 runs. Raina has so far scored 160 runs in 12 matches of IPL 2021. During this his average has been only around 20.
This player will snatch the place
Instead of Suresh Raina, Dhoni can now replace Robin Uthappa in his team. Uthappa was included in his team by CSK this year, but he has not been able to play a single match for CSK so far. Keeping the playoffs in mind, Dhoni must be thinking that Raina has become a big weakness for his team. In such a situation, now soon Raina can be shown the way out of the team.
Raina is one of the most dangerous batsmen in IPL history and the whole world knows him as Mr. IPL. Since 2008, Raina has played a total of 204 matches and during this he has scored more than 5 thousand runs. As much as Dhoni has contributed to the success of CSK, Raina has also contributed with the bat. But now the effect of age on his game is also clearly visible.
CSK is the 3 time champion
Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, CSK has won the IPL title 3 times so far. CSK has so far won the IPL title 3 times in 2010, 2011 and 2018. Apart from this, this team has reached the playoffs of every IPL except 2020. However, last year, CSK was out of the tournament in the league stage itself.
