After the Border Gavaskar Trophy, all our eyes will be on the upcoming IPL 2021, as BCCI confirmed that there is no mega auction in this year ,likewise BCCI yet to confirm the date for Mini Auction .Also BCCI stated that they communicated the same to respective IPL franchise to submit their retention & release of players within Jan 20 2020.
As per the sources, CSK likely to release Suresh Raina ,since CSK Team were in the situation to build thier franchise for future and revamp their team with youngsters with the mentorship of MSD in 2021, also with the fact they did not have enough money on their purse to buy big players in the Auction there are high chances that Raina might be one of the big bid in the auction 2021.
According to the BCCI rules, teams will have money on thier purse which will be common to every franchise playing IPL , depending on the release and retention players list their purse value will increase in the mini auction.
Since , CSK’s most promised batsman and MR. IPL Raina had a 11Cr contract with CSK. According to the IPL norms, if a player has to be retained by the IPL franchise, it has to be done at the same price as it was in the previous year. Franchise cannot increase or reduce the salary of the player .So it clearly shows that if Raina has to be retained by CSK, they will have to shell out 11Crores. Already, CSK has only 0.15 crores in their purse which was very low in comparison with other franchises.
IPL Auction 2021 Remaining Purse list
|Kings XI Punjab||16.5 Cr|
|Sunrisers Hyderabad||10.1 Cr|
|Delhi Capitals||9 Cr|
|Kolkatta Knight Riders||8.5 Cr|
|Royal Challengers Bangalore||1.95 Cr|
|Mumbai Indians||1.95 Cr|
|Chennai Super Kings||0.15 Cr|
Will Suresh Raina play for CSK again?
Yes , there are some chances if they release him in auction and buy him with the money less than 10 cr , but the name is Suresh Raina. We cannot expect him with lower the price(10cr) in auction .Teams like Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore are starving to get these kind of No: 3 batsman in their squad , it is not an easy thing to buy Suresh Raina in the Mini Auction with less money on thier purse, but CSK has one more way to increase their purse value and buy Raina for their franchise ..
