IPL: Suresh Raina is
not being considered for the position in Gujarat Titans

Suresh Raina, a former Indian cricketer,
went unsold in the IPL 2022 mega auction. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) did not re-sign him and
showed no interest in purchasing him during the auction.
Raina, dubbed 'Mr.IPL,' was expected to be signed by a franchise for at least his base fee.
However, this was not the case, and he was left unsold. Raina was recently the subject of new
rumours that he might be picked up by the Gujarat Titans, a new organisation (GT).
Raina was recently the subject of new rumours that he might be picked up by the Gujarat Titans,
a new organisation (GT). He also announced that he will retire from cricket indefinitely,
becoming the second English player to do so after Ben Stokes.
Raina was widely considered to be the best contender for GT as Roy's replacement. A
representative that is close to the GT franchise, however, has debunked those rumours. He told
the media that Raina will not be joining the Gujarat Titans this season and he isn't even being
considered for the position.
Suresh Raina's absence from the IPL was a difficult matter for his supporters to accept.
However, Raina’s most recent social media photo has left internet users perplexed. A few days
ago, the 35-year-old posted a photo online in which he was seen copying actor Allu Arjun's
gesture from his current flick 'Pushpa.'
Some of the movie's signature gestures and dialogues have gone viral on the internet. It may
have been a typical post following the tradition, but Raina's caption accompanying his photo
sparked new speculation: he might join the newly-introduced IPL team Gujarat Titans.
Raina's affiliation with the IPL is effectively over, at least for the time being. For the time
being, he is the league's fourth-highest run-scorer. Raina's total of 5,528 runs is second only
to Virat Kohli's (6,283), Rohit Sharma's (5,784), and Shikhar Dhawan's (5,784). (5,611).
On the other hand, Hardik Pandya has been named the GT squad's captain. The franchise signed him
for INR 15 crores ahead of the IPL mega auction in 2022. Prior to the event, Rashid Khan and
Shubman Gill were added as well.
