With Suresh Raina flying back home due to his personal reasons, a major question had been raised, Who is the player that can fill in big boots of Mr.IPL?
The management has made clear that there would be no replacement for Suresh Raina and a player from the team itself will be picked to bat in his no.3 position. Suresh Raina did not have tremendous IPL season last year, yet we know that he is a beat when it comes to playing IPL. He is the second leading run scorer in IPL with 5368 runs in his bag.
N.Srinivas, who owns CSK told in his latest interview that they are looking forward to Ruturaj Gaikwad to bat at no.3. This 23 year old dashing batsman has performed exceptionally well in the domestic cricket for Maharashtra and India A teams. He is the second highest run-getter in Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy who made 419 runs.
Sadly, He along with Deepak Chahar and 11 other staff have been tested positive to corona and are under isolation. According to the latest reports both of them along with the staff had testes negative and will undergo another test in the upcoming days. CSK's opening match with Mumbai Indians has also been rescheduled. MI will open with RCB in the first match of this IPL edition.
