Suresh Raina, a former cricketer for India and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), believes an effective Ravindra Jadeja would be essential to MS Dhoni and company in the 2023 IPL season.
Raina discussed Jadeja’s outstanding performance in the current Border-Gavaskar Trophy, where the latter has already taken home two Player-of-the-Match honors. He believes the all-rounder has put a lot of effort into improving his fitness and now appears to be a totally different player than he was prior to the knee surgery.

Fans Will Cheer For Ravindra Jadeja And MS Dhoni At Chepauk: Suresh Raina
Here is what Suresh Raina had to say in an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda outside of the JioCinema CricStream showcase on the assistance that Ravindra Jadeja may offer CSK captain MS Dhoni:
“Sir Jadeja has done really well with both bat and ball of late and he will prove to be a great support to Dhoni. He has gone through a great rehab as he is looking really strong and physically fit. When he goes there (Chepauk), fans will cheer for him as well as for Dhoni.”

Ruturaj Gaikwad, who will play in his debut game at Chepauk, was one of the players Suresh Raina discussed. He stated:
“Ruturaj will play his first game at the Chepauk. He is a great player and will definitely do well. MS Dhoni will also be keen to go back to Chepauk and interact with all the ‘Whistle Podu’ and ‘Yellove’ fans. It will be very exciting and I hope we will start with a win there.”
One of Chennai’s devoted sons, Suresh Raina has over the years amused the Chepauk throng with some of his amazing knocks. He is thrilled to witness other members of the current CSK team get the same fervent support from the supporters.
Here is what Raina said about CSK playing in Chennai for the first time since 2019:
“I am very happy that we are back playing in front of our fans after four long years. We won a trophy in Dubai in those four years and the fans would be proud that we achieved that while we were away from our home.”
Chennai will want to win all of their home games and lay the groundwork for a run at the elusive sixth IPL championship.
