Retired from international cricket in 2020

The announcement of Raina and Dhoni‘s retirements from international cricket on August 15, 2020, is significant. However, he was participating in domestic cricket, particularly the IPL, with Chennai Super Kings. However, CSK did not buy for him in the auction last season and released him prior to the mega auction. This marked Raina’s first unpurchased season in the IPL.

Can play in foreign leagues

On September 5, Raina also uploaded a video of himself playing cricket. But a day later, he shocked the supporters with his choice. As a result of Raina’s decision, he won’t be seen competing in the IPL or any other domestic league. Raina reportedly made this decision in order to play in overseas competitions.
