Andhra’s rookie pacer Harishankar Reddy has been a popular cricketer these days, especially after February 18. The day he got picked in CSK for Rs 20 Lakh. That was the auction day and Reddy knew his life will change playing alongside many legends of the game, including ‘Thala’ MS Dhoni. Now, there are some who maybe questioning his skill. To them we would only suggest that they take a close look at this pic where he was seen bowling a stunning delivery which uprooted none other than MS Dhoni’s leg stump.

Meanwhile talking about CSK, how can one forget that how much a big role will Suresh Raina play for them. Last time around he opted to quit the tournament with an eye on the prevalent Covid-19 situation. Former India wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel feels that MS Dhoni, along with some of the more seasoned players can bring back the lost glory for Chennai.
Speaking exclusively on Star Sports’ show CRICKET CONNECTED, Parthiv said, “See, obviously they must be slightly disappointed that they have to get out of Chennai because they have got Moeen Ali in their squad, they have got K Gowtham in their squad. Last year, what went wrong for CSK was, that they were not getting enough runs on the board.
“Then, in the latter half of the tournament, you see emergence of Ruturaj Gaikwad. And now with Suresh Raina coming in the squad. I think he holds big key in the CSK lineup and we have seen what he has done throughout the years of IPL. With him coming back and Rituraj Gaikwad doing well in domestic cricket and plus MS Dhoni, they’re great players and you can’t count them out for too long.
