Fans of team Chennai Super Kings are extremely dejected over the team’s decision on not buying Raina for even a base price. The left hand bowling all rounder was not picked by any of the franchises at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction and went unsold in the first round of the auction. The Dhoni-led team management didn’t show any interest to list him in acceleration round as well.

Fondly called as “Chinna Thala” by the fans of Chennai Super Kings, Raina played almost all the seasons for Chennai Super Kings. In 2020, he didn’t play for the team due to his own unavailability but now, after the team decided not to buy him in the Mega Auction, hints that the IPL career of “Mr.IPL” is over. Fans are sharing the stats, videos and images of Raina representing team Chennai Super Kings and are going emotional. The non-existence of Faf Du Plesis in the upcoming season, became a double blow for the fans of Chennai as well.
