IPL 2021: Suresh Raina Discusses MS Dhoni Helped Him Perform Well

He Shares How The Captain Helped Raina To Perform Well

The Board of Control of India (BCCI) is set to announce the resumption of IPL 2021. While this is good news to players and cricket fans, the United Arab Emirates will host the game in September. For this reason, Raina is looking forward to applying his skills and expertise to help MS Dhoni win another title. On top of that, he believes that he will display better and produce the best record ever. 

Raina is a professional cricketer who has played and recorded better results in many matches. He has managed to get two hundred IPL games under his belt, credits, 5,491 runs, and 39 fifties. This is the main reason MS Dhoni believes that he will produce outstanding results. Being a retired India batsman, Suresh has displayed exceptional records in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Although he was not part of the 2020 season, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) southpaw is still going hard in 2021. Even if he started slow this year, Raina has made 123 runs in seven games for CSK in the 2021 season. This happened before the IPL was suspended due to increasing COVID-19 cases in the country. Recently, the past middle-order batter opened up about the same in his autobiography and spoke lengthily about his compatibility with his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper.

Raina said that Dhoni knew how to get the best performance out of him, and that’s why he trusted him. He praised Dhoni and added that he has worked to win his sport in team India, just like with Dhoni. This came to be when he said that people equated their connection with a spot for him which was not good. Apparently, CSK is currently have been ranked in second place on the IPL 2021 points table.

This was outstanding and shocking despite losing their first match of the 14th edition of the league to last year’s runners-up Delhi Capitals. Moreover, Dhoni’s side had already failed to make the Indian Premier League Playoffs in their history. Raina decided to return home from the United Arab Emirates due to personal reasons. So far, Suresh Raina has displayed outstanding records in his career. 

Aside from being one of the best No. 3 batters in IPL, Raina was outstanding on the field, too often patrolling the point and cover regions with his splendid fielding. Moreover, Raina and Dhoni have developed a great bonding due to focusing on trust and respect for each other. This is what has made the duo succeed in their cricket career. For instance, it is seen when Raina made his international debut on 30th July 2005 in a match against Sri Lanka. Furthermore, Dhoni also made his debut against Bangladesh in 2004.

With their belief, trust, and respect for each other, they have managed to perform better in different matches and succeed in their career.
