The bowlers did, though, gave CSK some hope, dragging Mumbai to 33/4 but once the powerplay was done, Tilak Varma and Hrithik Shokeen, followed by Tim David comfortably took MI home for only their third win of the season.
Following this disappointing batting performance by the CSK batters, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh took a slight dig at former India and CSK stalwart, Suresh Raina, when the two were watching an indoor football game.
In an Instagram story that Yuvraj uploaded, he asked a few words from Suresh Raina on the CSK’s 97 all out. Raina’s reply was a savage one.
“Raina. Aapki team aaj 97 pe all out ho gayi hai. Kya kehna chahenge aap? (Your team got bowled out for 97 tonight. What do you have to say?)” Yuvraj asked the former CSK batsman.
In response, Raina came up with a gem of a reply: “Main nahi thha na paaji match mein (I wasn’t part of the match).” This had Yuvraj laughing.

Suresh Raina had been the backbone of the CSK batting line-up for a decade. In fact, CSK qualified for the playoffs/semis in all the seasons that Raina had been part of, while losing out on a top-four spot in 2020 – when Rain returned back home from the UAE – and 2022 when he wasn’t bought back in the mega-auction.
After going unsold in the mega-auction, Raina joined the commentary team for the IPL 2022. Known as Mr. IPL, Suresh Raina amassed 5528 runs in 205 games in the IPL.
