"You people do justice to IPL if you take Suresh Raina" - fans want Gujarat Titans to sign Suresh Raina as a replacement for Jason Roy


The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will miss the likes of Mr. IPL Suresh Raina who has gone unsold in the two-day bidding held at Bengaluru. Everyone thought that the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will rope the left-hander who has set his base price for INR 2 crores.

But, unfortunately, the CSK management didn't bid for Suresh Raina as he went unsold ahead of the upcoming edition. However, the English cricketer Jason Roy has been pulled out of IPL as the Gujarat Titans' fans want the franchise to rope Suresh Raina to the squad.

Among them, one of the fans requested the Gujarat based franchise to announce Suresh Raina as the replacement for Jason Roy ahead of the league. Another one has also claimed that he can spark in this season if they sign him for the tournament.
