Suresh Raina who suddenly quit the IPL training camp in UAE said that one should not rule out his return to the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) side. Speaking to Cricbuzz, Raina said that coming back to India was a personal decision but cleared the air, saying that nothing was wrong between him and the Chennai Super Kings Franchise.
“It was a personal decision and I had to come back for my family. There was something that needed to be addressed immediately on the home front,” said Raina. He further added that CSK is his family too and Mahendra Singh Dhoni is relevant to him.
“Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) is very important to me and this was a tough decision. There is no issue between CSK and me,” Raina added. Raina also mentioned that his training has not stopped even though he is not with the team in Dubai and good news for the CSK fans who might see him with the CSK team in the UAE again.
“I’ve been training even while quarantining here. You never know you might see me in the camp there again,” the batsman said. Raina also cleared the air on the N.Srinivasan rift issue, he said that Srinivasan is like a father figure to him and his comments were taken out of context.
The CSK batsman added that Srinivasan did not know the real reason of him leaving the team ahead of the IPL 2020.
“He is like a father figure to me and he’s always stood by me and is close to my heart. He treats me like his younger son and am sure a lot of what he said was taken out of context. Ek baap apne bacche ko daant sakta hai (A father can scold his son),” Raina added.
The left-handed batsman added that he will stick CSK for another four to five years more.
