In a video shared by Chennai Super Kings on their YouTube channel on Monday, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanath said that Raina has been consistently performing for CSK over the years and not having him was “very difficult”. He added that they didn’t acquire Raina at the Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction keeping in mind the team’s composition. He said:

“Raina has been one of the most consistent performers for CSK for the last 12 years. Of course, it was very difficult for us, no to have Raina but at the same time you should also understand that the team composition depends on the form and kind of team which any team would like to have so that’s one of the reasons why we thought he may not fit into this team.”
