Chennai Super Kings’ fans are in a dilemma with all the events that are happening in Dubai. The franchise are having a tough time ahead of IPL 2020. After being hit by Corona crisis, the team hit a new low when Suresh Raina decided to pull out.
The 33-year old decided against playing in IPL 2020 due to personal reasons. Although, the news came down hard on the fans, they eventually took it in their stride. On the other hand, the management are still looking for a replacement to Suresh Raina.
The southpaw is their leading run scorer in IPL history. He is also their vice captain since years. One curious fan has queried Chennai Super Kings about who their new vice captain is.
The franchise replied, ” Wise Captain irruke bayam yen?” (When you have a wise captain, why fear?”
Wise captain irukke bayam yen? 🦁💛

The reply garnered the attention of CSK fans and immediately became viral. In fact MS Dhoni is so consistent that the team did not look beyond him since 2008. Suresh Raina did captain the team when captain cool was given rest over the years.
Raina is an important player in the CSK dressing room. However, considering the enormous fitness levels of MS Dhoni, there is very little chance for him to miss even a game in the upcoming tournament.
The admin of Chennai Super Kings definitely deserve a pay raise after such an epic reply.
