"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.
Putting your faith in me and picking me in the auction: Jason Roy
Jason Roy took to his official Twitter handle and posted a picture that stated, "Hi everyone, especially the Gujarat Titans fans and squad. It’s with a heavy heart I have decided to pull out of this years tournament.
I want to thank the management and the captain Hardik for putting your faith in me and picking me in the auction. However with everything going on in the world over the last 3 years it’s added up and taken it’s toll on me."
"I feel it’s only right I spend some quality time with my family. As well as spending time working on myself and my game over the next couple of months leading into a very busy year.
I will be following each game of the Titans and backing them to lift the trophy in their first year of the tournament. Thank you everyone for the continued support and I hope you can all respect and appreciate my decision," he added.
