Former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player Suresh Raina desperately wanted to wear the yellow jersey and visit the stadium to support his team. CSK is taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the opening game of the IPL 2022 season.

Raina went unsold in the mega auction and will not be taking part in the IPL. However, his loyalty for CSK will always remain, indicated in his desire to don the CSK jersey and go to Wankhede to support his former team.
