Suresh Raina’s lack of form in the ongoing second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is a major concern for the table-topper Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ahead of the playoffs.
However, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has said that MS Dhoni will never replace Suresh Raina with anyone else.

“I don’t think Dhoni would have any doubts about Raina’s batting order. The captain knows very well that the latter isn’t performing well. But he wouldn’t think about replacing Raina with someone else. He knows his team’s batting line-up has depth – till Shardul Thakur. So, he won’t worry about Raina’s batting position,” said Sehwag during a discussion on Cricbuzz.

“Dhoni didn’t come up in the order but sent Raina ahead of him. But the latter played a rash shot and lost his wicket. MS will surely want Raina to score some runs before competing in the playoffs.

“Sometimes players keep on trying but couldn’t score and Suresh Raina must keep the process on. But he is that kind of a player who might score directly in the playoffs because he has ample experience with him.

“He loves to play this format and I think, there will be one game when he will get runs and he must wait for that. Till then, he must go for playing the balls instead of scoring runs,” added Sehwag.
