Indian Premier League: “Not a joke,” Suresh Raina tweets India’s COVID-19 crisis

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season was postponed indefinitely, with Suresh Raina resorting to Twitter to inspire everyone amid the devastating coronovirus epidemic. Raina, who was part of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team for IPL 2021, held the tournament in the UAE last year for personal reasons. Taking to Twitter, Raina saluted everyone for the fight against the virus. “This is no joke anymore! So many people are at stake and have never felt so helpless in life. No matter how much we want to help, but we are literally running out of resources. Everyone in this country The person is safe. To stand by each other to save lives! #WeCandoit “, he wrote.

India is currently reeling under the second wave of epidemic, and is among the most affected countries. India’s total COVID-19 cases crossed the 2 crore mark on Tuesday, with more than 3.57 lakh new infections. The dreaded virus has killed 3,449 more people, taking the total fatalities to 2,22,408.

IPL 2021, which began on 9 April, was facing considerable criticism over the past few weeks due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in India. The tournament soon fell victim to the virus, with many positive cases.


Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha tested positive on Monday morning after two Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players – Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier.

Also, CSK had positive cases with Laxmipathy Balaji and supporting staff testing positive on Monday. On Tuesday, the franchise had another positive result, in which Mike Hussey succumbed to the virus.
