Reports are rife that Chennai Super Kings are all set to release Suresh Raina from their squad for IPL 2022. A report from an Indian daily newspaper has mentioned that CSK is set to retain MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ruturaj Gaikwad ahead of IPL 2022 auction. In overseas category, the four-time IPL champions will go for either Moeen Ali or Sam Curran. Hence, it is highly expected that Suresh Raina might bid goodbye to the franchise.

After left-handed batsman’s poor show in IPL 2021, CSK might also not aggressively seek to bid for Raina during the IPL 2022 mega auction. However, some other franchises might be interested to pick Raina, who has mustered 5528 runs in 200 IPL innings at an average of 32.51, grabbing the spot of 4th highest run-scorer in the tournament currently. Here we talk about 3 teams that can target Suresh Raina in IPL 2022 auction.

Punjab Kings is the first team that might target Suresh Raina in IPL 2022 auction. Punjab Kings faced issues at the middle-order in the 2021 season. While their openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal managed to provide fabulous starts to the batting, their middle-order struggled with turmoil to pile up enough runs. With an experienced middle-order batsman like Raina, the team might have some consistency in the middle-order.
