Chennai Super Kings (CSK) legend Suresh Raina is sweating a lot as the team prepares for the second round of IPL 2021, which is set to begin in the UAE on September 19 UAE.
Raina, who withdrew from IPL 2020 last year due to personal reasons, wants to take advantage of the UAE in this year’s tournament. On Wednesday, CSK uploaded a video of Suresh Raina batting on the net, which was captured on a super camera.
“Hi, that’s Suresh Raina. See me at Super Cam. Let’s train now. Let’s go,” Suresh Raina said in the video before belting the bowlers around the park.
The southpaw will hope to shrug off his poor form in the UAE leg of IPL 2021 as CSK aim for their fourth IPL trophy. Raina had blown hot and cold in the first phase of IPL 2021. He scored only 123 runs from seven matches at an average of 24.60, with the highest score of 54 against the Delhi Capitals.
CSK positioned second in the IPL 2021
Despite losing the first match of IPL 2021, MS Dhoni’s CSK was able to overtake, winning five of their next six matches to take the Delhi Capitals to second place.
They finished seventh in the group stages and failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time ever in the tournament’s history in IPL 2020. The Yellow Brigade will hope to continue their winning run in the UAE, where they struggled during IPL 2020.
CSK will begin their campaign against defending IPL champions Mumbai Indians in the second leg of IPL 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on September 19.
