Suriya’s message to Suresh Raina

Popular cricketer Suresh Raina’s uncle was recently slaughtered to death, and his cousin who was injured also passed away. Raina requested Punjab police and the Chief Minister to look into the crime and find the culprits.

“What happened to my family in Punjab was beyond horrible. My uncle was slaughtered to death, my bua & both my cousins had severe injuries. Unfortunately my cousin also passed away last night after battling for life for days. My bua is still very very critical & is on life support”, tweeted Raina.

Responding to him, actor Suriya posted, “My deepest condolences dear @ImRaina we all shoulder your grief! Let the heartless criminals be summoned to justice!! @CMOPb @capt_amarinder @PunjabPoliceInd.”

Meanwhile, Suresh Raina is like a “son” to him but Chennai Super Kings owner N Srinivasan on Wednesday said the all-rounder’s return to the side this IPL season after an unanticipated pullout would be decided by the team management led by skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Raina had last week left the CSK camp in Dubai amid 13 COVID-19 cases, including national team seamer Deepak Chahar, but there was some controversy regarding an alleged breach of bio bubble, something the player has categorically denied.

Suresh Raina has cleared the air somewhat about his sudden, personal decision to leave the IPL bubble and return to India last weekend. In an  interview to Cricbuzz, the 33-year-old dismissed reports of there being a rift between him and Chennai Super Kings and refers to N Srinivasan’s comments about him as a ‘father scolding his son’.

Suresh Raina also reveals to have been concerned about his young family back home in the wake of the unfortunate incident involving his uncle while hinting that he might end up returning to the IPL camp.
