Suresh Raina’s exit from the league has left everyone heartbroken. He had decided to return back to India citing personal reasons. As soon as the news of Suresh Raina’s exit came out, speculations started about what made the star player leave the team. Many reports suggested that the cricketer was having the Coronavirus phobia. However, the former BCCI president and the owner of CSK N Srinivasan has hinted otherwise.
Well, there were rumors that there was a rift between Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni and recently, N Srinivasan pretty much confirmed it.
It was reported that Suresh Raina was unhappy with the hotel room he was given and was finding the stiff protocols of the bio-bubble claustrophobic. He wanted to have a similar room like MS Dhoni. Talking to Outlook, Srinivasan told:
“Cricketers are like prima donnas … like the temperamental actors of the olden days. Chennai Super Kings have always been like a family and all seniors players have learnt to co-exist,”
“My thinking is that if you are reluctant or not happy, go back. I don’t force anyone to do anything … sometimes success gets into your head,”
Soon after Srinivasan’s statements came out, Kedar Jadhav took to his twitter and posted a cryptic tweet. He shared a workout video of himself, however, it was the caption that became the talk of the town.
In the caption, he described the recent incident by taking a dig at Suresh Raina. He wrote:
“On the path of excellence – you find 1000 excuses to let go, but only 1 reason to hold on. The choice is YOURS !”
