IPL 2017: The Gujarat Lions captain Suresh Raina has said that he was disappointed when MS Dhoni was sacked as captain by Rising Pune Supergiant owners before the start of IPL 2017. Raina has played a lot of his cricket under MS Dhoni’s leadership feels that Dhoni should be respected every time.
This is what Suresh Raina said:
”I was disappointed. He has done so well for the country as well as for the IPL teams. He should be respected every time. It’s about not me saying, it’s the world saying,” Raina said in an interview.
”Having shared the dressing room with him (for India and CSK), you know what goes through when one faces hardships. He (Dhoni) should be respected as a player. In any profession, be it as a player or a journalist, you need to be respected. Even a player, however short his career span may be, wants to earn respect,” Raina added.
“The time I spent with Chennai Super Kings will always remain special. We have won so many trophies, be it IPL or Champions League T20. When I was very young, it gave me a great learning opportunity by being among all the legends,” Raina continued.
