  • Suresh Raina turned 36 on November 27
  • CSK sent their wishes to the former vice-captain
  • Raina had a long career for the Yellow Army
Suresh Raina has turned a year older and is celebrating his 36th birthday today (November 27). The left-hander has been receiving wishes from all corners of social media and Chennai Super Kings shared a series of posts wishing their Chinni Thala on his birthday.
“A true super king marked by his character from the inside out! Super birthday to you Chinna Thala!,” CSK wrote in their first tweet for Raina. “The inside out brand will always be etched in our hearts forever! We you, Chinna Thala!” the franchise wrote in another tweet. The Yellow Army also released a video for Raina in the evening.

Raina had a long career for CSK and played for Gujarat Lions only after a 2-year ban from the Yellow Army. He started his career in CSK in 2008 and remained a part of the team till 2008. Raina was appointed as the vice-captain of CSK and led the team in the absence of MS Dhoni.
Raina became the mainstay of CSK’s batting and ended his career as their top scorer. At one stage, Raina was also the top scorer of the IPL. Raina has 5528 runs in the T20 league. Out of which he scored 4687 runs for CSK.

Rai’s relationship with CSK probably took a hit when he returned from UAE before the start of IPL 2020. When they arrived in UAE, there were several cases of COVID-19 in the CSK camp. Raina was retained by CSK for IPL 2021 but missed a few matches in the later stages of the tournament.

In the IPL 2022 mega auction, CSK did not bid for their former vice-captain and Raina remained unsold. He took up commentary during the T20 league.

Raina, who retired from the international competition along with MS Dhoni, has now also retired from the IPL and is unable to play for any franchise. He can join any team as a coach.
