Suresh Raina is still fit and can play for another four-five years but he will retire if MS Dhoni decides to retire from the Indian Premier League.
“I have four-five years left in me. We have the IPL this year, and then two more teams next year. But I think I’ll play only for CSK till I play. I hope we do well this year,” Raina told News 24 Sports.
“If Dhoni Bhai doesn’t play next season, I too won’t play. We’ve been playing since 2008 (for CSK)… if we win this year then I’ll convince him to play next year too…“I’ll try my best. If he will not play, then I don’t think I will play for any IPL team.”
The left-handed batsman would try to convince the CSK skipper to carry on if the franchise manages to win the title in the UAE. CSK were in the second spot when the league was suspended following the emergence of the Covid-19 cases within the franchises.
Dhoni and Raina have been part of CSK since the inception of the IPL, apart from the two years when the franchise was suspended (2016 and 2017).
