Suresh Raina names four players who can lead CSK after MS Dhoni


Recognised as 'MR IPL' in the Indian Premier League, Suresh Raina is the highest run-getter for Chennai Super Kings in this cash-rich contest. The left-handed batsman never failed to perform for his team and has won many nail-biting encounters single-handedly for the side.

However, after being unsold in the mega auction, Suresh Raina will be doing Hindi commentary in this edition of the Indian Premier League. In that case, he shared a few words in the press conference organised by Star Sports and said, "Very very happy and looking forward to this new role."

"There is immense pressure on younger guys due to auction price tag. The franchise, the captain always expect good performance. We have seen many a time how big a price tag has affected a player’s game. If his process is good then the rest will take place," he added. 

Jadeja, I think, has a good cricketing brain: Suresh Raina

Ravindra Jadeja - CSK

The left-handed batsman has preferred four names to can captain Chennai Super Kings in a webinar hosted by Star Sports and said, "Rayudu is there then you have Robin Uthappa then DJ Bravo is there. Jadeja, I think, has a good cricketing brain and has been performing well recently."

However, as we all know that Ravindra Jadeja will be the first choice among those four cricketers, as three of them have already crossed their age limits and will be seen for just a few years in this tournament.

Ravindra Jadeja has been the first player that the CSK management retained for this season for a staggering amount of INR 16 crores.

When asked about his new role in IPL, Suresh Raina said, "I am prepared for this. Some of my friends Irfan Pathan, Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla are already doing commentary.

And then we will have Ravi Bhai (Shastri) also in this season. So I think it’s going to be easy for me. I can take tips from my friends. I am very very happy and looking forward to this role."
