IPL 2021: Coach Stephen Fleming Backs Suresh Raina to Perform Well in Upcoming Games

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) become the first team to seal a place in the playoffs of the ongoing league who beat SRH by 6 wickets in match 44 of the IPL 2021 in Sharjah on Thursday. This IPL champion has 18 points on the back of nine wins from 11 matches.

But, the left-handed batsman had started the season with a 36-ball 54 against Delhi Capitals in Mumbai but since then has crossed 20 only once in nine innings. Overall, Raina has scored only 157 runs from 11 innings with 1 fifty.

“We’ve got a pretty clear role for him. He has got an optimal time that we want him to bat, and we’re afforded the luxury of having a player that can come in and be aggressive. So it’s just getting the timing right with that and managing the batters around him,” Fleming said about Raina in the post-match press conference.

“We value his experience and we think he’s got a part to play through the middle, which is an area that we’ve identified we can make a strength. Suresh is an experienced player, who has earned a bit of leeway. I expect as the tournament goes on, his performances will improve,” he added.
