Former India batsman Suresh Raina opted out of the IPL 2020. It was being speculated that the left-handed batsman had returned after his uncle passed away in Pathankot after a midnight attack.
But now according to a report in Outlook on Sunday stated that Raina was unhappy with the hotel room he was given.
N Srinivasan, chief of India Cements which owns CSK said that success gets into your heads’.
“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,” said Srinivasan.
“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.
“I spoke to MS (Dhoni) and he has assured me that even if the numbers go up, there was nothing to worry. He spoke to the players through a zoom call and asked them to remain safe. You really don’t know who is a passive carrier,” Srinivasan said.
