Suresh Raina receives backlash on Twitter for his ‘I am Brahmin’ comment

Team Udayavani, Jul 22, 2021, 1:09 PM IST

Former India cricketer Suresh Raina drew flak on the internet following one of his comments during a commentary stint in the ongoing Tamil Nadu Premier League.

Raina is a part of the Chennai Super Kings franchise in the Indian Premier League. He was asked by the TNPL commentators about his connection with Chennai and to which he replied, “I think I’m also Brahmin. I have been playing since 2004 in Chennai. I love the culture, I love my teammates.”

This resulted in Raina receiving widespread backlash on social media for his casteist comments during the TNPL commentary.

Raina announced his retirement from international cricket last year on August 15. He has ruled out the possibility of playing for any other franchise again other than three-time champions CSK.
