Update MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina: A friendship that goes beyond the boundaries

[Image: pjimage-2020-08-16t101241-1597552966.jpg]

Raina made his debut a year after Dhoni's maiden international appearance, under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid. But Raina truly emerged as a match-winning talent under Dhoni's guidance, but first in CSK colours. Both were part of the Chennai-based franchise since 2008, while sharing two seasons apart due to the match-fixing scandal.

One of the most memorable matches involving this tactic of Dhoni's is the match against Kings XI Punjab at Kingsmead in 2009 where CSK spinners rallied to help the team successfully defend the lowest total in IPL history. The trio reduced KXIP from 32 for one to 92 for eight as they returned with combined figures of 12-0-38-6. Raina had finished with 2/17.
