The crispy conversation shows the brotherhood that they share in the CSK’s camp. Though they were from different countries as many said “IPL unites players across the world together”.

Besides retaining Raina for the 2021 season, CSK had signed six players at the IPL auction last month. While England all-rounder Moeen Ali was roped in by CSK for INR 7 crore, off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham joined CSK for INR 9.25 crore. Veteran Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara will also play for the Dhoni-led side in the next season of the IPL.
