Update CSK will miss Raina but Dhoni will handle situation well at IPL 2020: Srikkanth

orld Cup-winner and former India captain Kris Srikkanth has said Chennai Super Kings will definitely feel the absence of Suresh Raina in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 but backed MS Dhoni to handle the situation and take the team into the play-offs once more.

Kris Srikkanth pointed out that MS Dhoni will be without the massive support he receives from Suresh Raina and that CSK will miss the energy their vice-captain brings to the field.

In a decision that came as a huge blow to CSK, Suresh Raina pulled out of IPL 2020, citing personal reasons, after arriving in the UAE with the rest of his teammates. Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh followed suit, withdrawing from the tournament after delaying his travel to the UAE.

Chennai Super Kings haven't named replacements for both the players as they are banking on their depth to fill in the holes at IPL 2020, starting September 19.

"Chennai Super Kings are definitely going to miss Raina. Firstly, as a player, as a batsman. Most importantly, fielder and part-time bowler. And as a vice-captain and support to Dhoni. Raina has been a huge support to Dhoni. He brings a lot of energy to the team. You're going to miss all that," Kris Sirkanth said in his YouTube show 'Cheeky Cheeka'.

"Harbhajan Singh, definitely yes. On tracks that are likely to spin more in the UAE, CSK will miss his experience. He has performed superbly well for CSK.

"Two big blows for CSK. Now it's all in the hands of Dhoni. He will handle it well, he has seen situations well. Even in such a situation, he will be able to do well."
