Raina, who played his last international match back in July 2018, is also eyeing to make a comeback in the Indian national team and a good performance in IPL 2020 might make his way easier. However, with the tournament being played in UAE, the 33-year-old will have to tackle a different challenge.
The pitches of Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah are known to favour the spinners while the boundaries are also on the larger side. Nevertheless, Raina has played in UAE before and he must make maximum utilization of the experience. Also, just like all the other teams, CSK is also expected to reach the base by the second or third week of August which will give them ample time to prepare for the tournament.
