5 Players who can replace Suresh Raina in IPL-2020:
After receiving shocking news earlier today that Suresh Raina pulled out from IPL-2020 and will return back to India. No one knows the actual reason behind the decision because it was not cleared by him. Everyone is trying to make the best guess.
According to some channels, Suresh Raina is coming home from UAE because his close relatives were being attacked by robbers in Pathankot, Punjab. In which his uncle died.
On the other hand, some are guessing that Raina pulled out due to concern over bubble isolation.
But there is a big question, who will be seen in the yellow jersey who can replace Suresh Raina?
These 5 players could replace Suresh Raina:
Hanuma Vihari who remained unsold this IPL season. He played last IPL league with Delhi Capitals and could have played only two matches.
Now Chennai Super Kings can take him. This All-rounder has played 24 IPL matches with an average of 14.3.
37 years old Yusuf had played with many IPL teams including Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrises Hyderabad etc. When SH released him, he remained unsold but this year CSK could see him as an opportunity.
Yusuf is a hard-hitting player who can contribute with his bowling as well if needed.
He is not a very known guy. Rohan Kadam is a left-handed batsman who usually plays in top order. He had played DY Patil Tournament and showed his skills.
He was in the list at the auctions but nobody showed interest in him. But this years seems fair for guys like him. As after Suresh Raina pulls out CSK can look after him.
Manoj Tiwari made his IPL debut in 2008. He has a lot of Ipl experience. But after 2018 season, franchises are ignoring him and he remained unsold again. He has played 98 IPL matches and scored 1697 runs.
Manoj Tiwari could be a good replacement for Chennai Super Kings this year.
Akshdeep Nath made his IPL debut in 2016. He had played under Gujarat Lions, Kings XI Punjab, RCB. He has played 14 IPL matches and scored 90 runs with a strike rate of 91.
Akshdeep can be a good replacement of Suresh Raina and got the opportunity this year.
