This season has been full of controversies for the three-time IPL champion Chennai Super Kings. The first team’s star batsman Suresh Raina suddenly returned to the country due to personal reasons, while after this 13 members of the team were hit by Corona.
Among the 13 members were fast bowler Deepak Chahar and batsman Rituraj Gaikwad. The test of both the players has come negative and he also joined the training. However, the team has not included anyone in the team in place of Suresh Raina.
Suresh Raina is an important part of the team:
Raina is the regular number three batsman in Chennai. In his absence, the team needs a talented batsman. Former Australian batsman Shane Watson said that it will not be easy for the team to replace Raina. He said, ‘We have to grapple with the absence of Raina and Harbhajan.
The good thing with CSK is that there is a lot of depth in the team. It will not be easy to give someone else instead of Raina. He is the second batsman to score the most runs in IPL, while he has played the most matches in IPL. Watson said that as far as replacing Raina is concerned, it is Indian Test batsman Murali Vijay who can play an important responsibility for the team.
Murali Vijay will replace Raina in the team:
Watson said, “Of course Raina’s absence is a big loss, but we have Murali Vijay. He is a gun player.” He has not got a chance to play T20 for some time but he is a great batsman. Last year, he was on the bench most of the time, but now he will get more opportunities.
Veteran all-rounder Shane Watson believes that the Chennai Super Kings (IPL), despite hindrances in preparations due to 13 cases of Covid-19, coming on the back of their experienced and capable players, the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) ) Will be successful in winning.
13 members of the Chennai team were found infected with this deadly disease a few weeks before the tournament starting on 19 September. Two players were also included in these. Due to this, his team had to remain on segregation for more days and he started practicing at the earliest.
Watson said on Nabil Hashmi’s YouTube program, “Being an experienced team means that your players have a good sense of showing their skills in pressure situations right from the first match.”
