The Indian Premier League (IPL) has increased with respect to the new season. The first phase of the auction process ends today before the start of the new season. All the 8 teams of the league have to submit the list of the retained and released players to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) till Wednesday 20 January. There is a stir around it. Amidst all this, the speculation about Suresh Raina is currently being put to rest and it is believed that Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will retain their most successful batsman. However, the fate of other players will be decided soon.
Before the small auction for the new season, all teams have to send the list of released and retained players by Wednesday evening. After this, the list of players going for auction will be released by BCCI on Thursday 21 January. All eyes are on the 3-time champion Chennai Super Kings, whose bowler Harbhajan Singh has announced that he has separated from the franchise.
Already, reports are being quoted from sources that despite all the speculation, Suresh Raina will be a part of CSK this season too. News agency ANI quoted a source associated with the franchise as saying,
“Raina will definitely be part of the CSK family. He is an integral member and there was never any doubt about retaining him. It was his personal decision to return from the UAE and the management made it clear that his decision should be respected. We hope he performs well. "
At the same time, according to the report of ESPN-Cricinfo, the franchise has released senior batsman Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav and spinner Piyush Chawla. Vijay has been a part of this franchise for a long time, while Piyush Chawla was bought by the team in the last auction.
Earlier, senior spinner Harbhajan Singh had tweeted that his agreement with CSK has ended. There was also speculation about Harbhajan's release from the beginning. Like Raina, he was not part of the team in IPL 2020 citing personal reasons.
