Ravindra Jadeja has grabbed the attention of the 2021 IPL with her fabulous hitters, bowling and rosters for the Chennai Super Kings so far. However, Scott Styris believes that Suresh Raina was also a key contributor for CSK in the 2021 IPL. Styris also said that Raina handled the stick perfectly in the middle of the passes, which Chennai Super Kings suffered a lot in the last IPL.
Suresh Raina has chosen not to attend IPL 2020 for personal reasons. However, he made a comeback in IPL 2021. So far, Suresh Raina and has scored 121 runs in 5 innings at an average of 30. He has also hit 1 half century. He is also a part-time spinner but has yet to play IPL 2021.
Suresh Raina still sets the tone for CSK: Scott Syris
While speaking to Star Sports, Scott Styris congratulated Suresh Raina and called him a key contributor for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021.
“When it comes to Fielding, all the emphasis has been on Jadeja, but Suresh Raina is the one who always sets the tone. He has therefore always been a key contributor. I like CSK’s move to bring it down to 4. That’s why Moeen Ali’s inclusion is a good and good one, given his struggles against shortballs and fastballs. So if he loses a spot he can sit there and make number 4 his own, ”said Scott Styris.
Styris also said Suresh Raina is very effective with the bat in the middle of the passes, which has helped CSK a lot at IPL 2021 so far.
“He’s so good against spinners that I think he can do those intermediates – five to 15 before he starts having fun – I think he can own them. And if you look at last year, that’s where CSK struggled, their sluggishness in the middle, their ability to pivot the strike and find limits against the spinners. Raina does this perfectly, ”added Scott Styris.
The Chennai Super Kings have shown incredible form in IPL 2021. After losing their opener against the Delhi Capitals, CSK led by MS Dhoni have won 5 consecutive games in IPL 2021. With 5 wins in 6 games, CSK holds first place in the 2021 IPL points table with 10 points.
