Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina has always been the backbone of his team Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. He has been associated with this IPL franchise ever since the inception of IPL.
Time and again, Raina has come to CSK’s rescue and has played many memorable knocks playing for Chennai Super Kings. Reminding the fans about one of Raina’s memorable performances in the IPL, that came against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in IPL 2014, a popular cricket website CricTracker asked the fans about the batsman who played an incredible knock against KXIP. CricTracker wrote:
“Can you guess this batsman who played a blinder of an innings against KXIP in IPL 2014 qualifier?”
For the unversed, Suresh Raina reached fever pitch and played one of the most special innings in the history of the Indian Premier League. Raina played a blistering knock of 87 runs off 25 balls, and smashed the Kings XI Punjabs’ bowlers to all the corners of the ground. His knock was laced with 12 fours and 6 sixes.
The tweet of CricTracker soon caught the attention of Suresh Raina, who came up with an epic reply. While fans kept guessing the name, Raina wrote his own name in reply to CricTracker.
