IPL 2019: Old is Gold! Yes, Suresh Raina came good against KKR as CSK won the crucial encounter by five wickets at Eden Gardens. It was the southpaw’s 58 off 42 balls and his 36th fifty that helped CSK over the line. Raina may not be in the contention for a World Cup spot which is supposed to be announced by BCCI on Monday (April 15), but fans want BCCI to reconsider Raina for No 4 spot. Raina’s breathtaking innings was laced with seven fours and a six. Raina also surpassed David Warner t score more runs against KKR in IPL. He went past Warner’s tally of 762 runs.
