Known as Chana Thala, Suresh Raina has been the lifeline of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with MS Dhoni.

Raina’s performance has seen a sharp decline.
He has been under scrutiny and has not been able to repeat his old form. Although he is the highest run-scorer for CSK in the IPL, Reena is nowhere near his best in the last few years. In the recent IPL 2021, he managed to score 160 runs in just 12 innings and was benched in the later stages of the tournament.
When it comes to building a strong core for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Dwayne Bravo is always mentioned. The Caribbean all-rounder has a long association with the Chennai-based franchise and has repeatedly proved his worth in gold. Bravo has excelled with his bowling skills, especially in the slog overs. He uses his vast experience and does all the tricks with the ball in death overs. However, his batting prowess has been a constant source of frustration. CSK is unlikely to retain Dwayne Bravo in the upcoming auction.

Who can easily serve the franchise for at least the next three years. Experts believe that Rayudu is unlikely to get a place in the team in the first place. Although if CSK has some funds left, they can bought.
