IPL 2021: Veteran Indian Cricketer Suresh Raina reveals that he wants to win the Vivo IPL 2021 for his ‘Brother’ MS Dhoni. The Indian T20 League which was halted midway due to a covid scare on May 4 will resume its operations in September.
The southpaw in his recent conversation on Star Sports show Cricket Connected said that Dhoni enjoyed his captaincy this year which gave confidence to each and every individual in the group.
The Vivo IPL 2021 phase 2 will begin on September 19 in the UAE, while the final will be played on October 15.
MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are placed at second place in the points table right below Delhi Capitals. CSK won five out of seven games they played in phase one of IPL 2021.
“Hopefully, when we go to Dubai, we will have a camp and we can again win it for him. I think the way we were playing this year, we were having some extra confidence from his captaincy and he was enjoying each other’s success.
Raina said that the presence of young players in the side gave them momentum going forward in the tournament.
Both MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina share a great camaraderie and have played most of the cricket together. From sharing India’s dressing room to donning CSK’s yellow, the duo has been the fan-favourite.
Moreover, to take the friendship goals to another level, Dhoni and Raina planned to bid adieu to all forms of international cricket together on the special occasion of the 74th Independence Day of India, August 15, 2020.
“We’ve played a lot of matches for India as well as CSK. I think it’s just the emotion and on top of that, we have that respect for each other. I have learned a lot from him and he is like a big brother to me.
Raina further said that together they have won many trophies and lost many as well, but the respect they carry for each other is enormous.
“We have won a lot of trophies together and have lost a lot of finals as well but the respect we have for each other is immense,” Suresh Raina added.
