With the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season indefinitely suspended, Suresh Raina has taken to Twitter to motivate everyone amid the devastating coronavirus pandemic. Raina, who was once a part of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) squad for IPL 2021, had pulled out final year when the tournament was once held in UAE because of personal reasons. Taking to Twitter, Raina saluted everyone for their fight against the virus. “This is not a prank anymore! Such a lot of lives at stake & never felt so helpless in life. No matter how much we need to help, but we are literally running out of resources. Each and every unmarried person of this country deserves a salute correct for standing by each and every other to save lives! #WeCandoit”, he wrote.
