IPL 2021 Final: CSK vs KKR- 3 CSK Superstars Who Might Warm The Bench In The Final
3. Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina is the first player in this list. Suresh Raina played a lot of matches in IPL 2021, but towards the end, he was benched. After his poor batting show, the team instead gave opportunities to Robin Uthappa in the middle-order.
Suresh Raina scored 160 runs in 11 innings at an average of 17.77 with 1 half-century. After Uthappa’s brilliant 63-run knock in the Qualifier 1 game against Delhi Capitals, it looks like the team might bench Raina in the final game as well and pick Uthappa.
