Chennai Super Kings, one of the most loved IPL franchise has found itself in a trap before the start of IPL 2020.
Earlier more than ten players and management personnel turn out to be Covid positive and later ‘Chinna Thala’ flying back to India, and all set to miss out the action on field this year. Well is there anything left to be seen by the franchise with just few weeks away for the tournament to begin?
With already Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad being infected with the virus, the management is already a bit shaken up and there is a big concern in the camp regarding the safety of other players.
To this adds on another shocker of Suresh Raina who is also called ‘Mr.IPL’, flying back to India due to some personal reasons. Well speculations are being made that it is not the personal reason but a rift with the management. Let’s not forget that Raina is the top run getters for CSK and also second-highest run scorer in the history of IPL behind Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
The team and management are already concerned about the on-field performance, but the performance of the field is also affected equally. Brands associated with CSK would be more tensed as this is surely going to affect the team’s performance which is indirectly linked to the visibility of the brand.
CSK is considered one of the top brand houses for sponsors with big names attached to it and also the success behind the back of former Indian skipper M.S Dhoni.
Sportsmint has also learnt from its reliable sources that Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh is still to join the team in UAE. This arises a lot of questions, like, will Bhajji be joining the squad or would prefer skipping this season considering the situation in the camp?
With Raina already announcing his retirement from International Cricket on August 15th, is it done for Raina in the yellow jersey? Will we again be seeing him play in the CSK den? How will the sponsors react to this?
