Suresh Raina will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the tournament’s best players. He spent most of his career with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and also appeared for the Gujarat Lions when the franchise was suspended in 2016 and 2017. In his IPL career, the southpaw scored 5528 runs in 200 innings at an average of 32.52 and a strike rate of 136.73. He didn’t bowl much in the IPL, but he managed to pick up 25 wickets.
