New Delhi, Kheliyad team |
At the beginning of IPL 2020, Suresh Raina came into the limelight because at that time he had decided not to play in this season.
Everything was going well for CSK, but Raina’s move upset the balance of this team till the end and the result was that CSK could not reach the playoffs for the first time. The team finished their campaign by staying at number seven.
Raina, popularly known as Mr IPL, had taken this decision due to personal reasons, but the effect of his absence in the team was clearly visible.
Now the IPL 2020 season is nearing its end once again and its final match will be played on November 10, but Suresh Raina is being remembered here.
The reason for this is very special. In fact, in the history of the last 12 seasons of the IPL, when talking about the playoffs and finals, the batsman has the highest number of runs in these matches.
In this case, Raina has batsmen like MS Dhoni, Shane Watson and Michael Hussey, but they are all behind him. Raina has scored a total of 714 runs in the playoff and final matches of the last 12 seasons of IPL.
