Suresh Raina Makes Debut as a Commentator in IPL 2022:
Fans call him by the names like Mr. IPL, Chinna Thala, Sonu and Chota Sachin. Yes we are talking about Suresh Raina, there is a good news for his fans. Suresh Raina’s fans were heartbroken since the IPL 2022 auction as none of the teams showed interest in buying him. But after a month or two of downtime here is a great news for CSK and Suresh Raina fans. Suresh Raina makes his debut as a commentator in IPL 2022. Coincidentally Mr. IPL is delivering his commentary for the franchise which he belong to, for the player whom he admire the most, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
How are fans reacting to Suresh Raina as a Commentator?
We have seen a lot by Suresh Raina’s bat, bowl and his amazing fielding skills. Now is the time to witness another side of him that is his commentary. Fans are really excited to listen to him and are expecting a lot of “inside the CSK dressing room” stories from Chinna Thala. Most of the fans are happy that Dhoni and Raina have come back together by this means once again. But, there are some fans who are really disappointed too. They want to see Suresh Raina in CSK’s jersey which is not happening. Some of the fans are disappointed by MS Dhoni also and are blaming him that Suresh Raina could have been a part of this IPL if Dhoni wanted.
Well there are always two faces of a coin, depends which face are you looking at. But what matters is that Suresh Raina is anyhow a part of IPL 2022 from the commentary box.
