New DelhiFormer Indian cricketer Suresh Raina has given a shocking statement about Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). He said that if Dhoni does not play the next Indian Premier League, he will also not play the tournament. His statement came after some senior cricketers had raised the possibility that Dhoni might not play the next IPL. He was asked in an interview to News 24 that you have 4-5 years of cricket left. In such a situation, if you leave CSK, which team would you like to play? The statement Raina gave on this was surprising. He said that if Mahi bhai does not play next year, then I will not play either. He said that if we win this season’s title, then I will convince him for next year. There is not much time in IPL-2022. It is noteworthy that Suresh Raina surprised everyone by announcing his retirement from international cricket on August 15, 2020, shortly after the retirement of MS Dhoni. Let us tell that Chennai Super Kings have started this season well and are currently at number two in the points table. The tournament was suspended due to Covid-19. The remaining matches are to be played in the UAE from September.
