Suresh Raina

Dhoni-led CSK to three title wins in 2010, 2011 and 2018 and is regarded as one of the most successful captains in the IPL.

Other two players to have scored over 5,000 runs in the IPL are Royal Challengers Banglore captain Virat Kohli and Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Suresh Raina.

Raina had pulled out of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) citing personal reasons.

Raina had travelled to the UAE along with other CSK players, but last week, the CSK batsman pulled out of the upcoming tournament due to personal reasons.

Raina said that his family is still not aware as to who was behind this attack. He has requested the Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to look into the matter.

"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," Srinivasan said.

It is being said that Asha Devi, sister of Raina's father is fighting for her life in the hospital, while his uncle, identified as 58-year-old Ashok Kumar died in the attack.

Over 10 members of the franchise tested positive for COVID-19 due to which Kings had decided to extend the mandatory six-day quarantine in UAE.

"Brother you will always be alive in our hearts, your fans miss you more than anything! Glowing star I have full faith on our government and it's leaders who will leave no stone unturned to bring you justice, you are a true inspiration," Raina tweeted.

"MS Dhoni is such a clever cricketer that he knew how to build players. Suresh Raina and R Ashwin are two best players, MS Dhoni produced. His level of understanding of the sport was so good that he used to pick players and then turn them into great players," Inzamam said.
