“Raina is like my son, but can’t say if he’ll return,” N Srinivasan:
Owner of Chennai Super Kings made a statement about Suresh Raina. He considers Suresh Raina as one of his sons but he can not make any comment if Raina will play IPL this year for CSK or not.
One week ago, an unfortunate event occurred with the family of Suresh Raina, which led him to return back to India. Because one of his closest uncles was attacked by some robbers in Punjab.
Some also believe that Suresh Raina believed CSK’s bio-bubble was not safe. He was concerned about his family and didn’t want to take any chance.
Recently Suresh Raina has spoken to N. Srinivasan and there were some rumours that he was talking about his comeback in the team again this year.
“Franchise never poked in cricketing matters,” Said N Srinivasan:
“I have treated him like my son. The reason for CSK’s success in IPL over the years is because of the fact that franchise never poked its nose into cricketing matters. India Cements is running cricket since the ’60s. I will always remain like that,” said N Srinivasan to PTI.
Srinivasan believes that they own team but they don’t own players so they can’t control them.
The decision of Suresh Raina will handle team management which includes team captain MS Dhoni and CEO KS Vishwanathan.
“I am not the cricket captain. I’ve never told them whom to play, whom to take in the auction. We have the greatest captain of all times. So, why shall I even interfere in cricketing matters?” N Srinivasan concluded.
