The Matthew Hayden – Suresh Raina friendship

Matthew Hayden played for the Chennai Super Kings for the first three years of the Indian Premier League and was a major part of the franchise when they won their first IPL trophy in 2010. He has scored over 1000 runs in the IPL, averaging 36.6 in the 32 matches he played. During these years, he was able to develop a bond with several players, most notably Suresh Raina.

Having played with Raina during the early part of his career, we asked ‘Haydos’ about his friendship with the Gujarat Lions captain.

We also heard Hayden on commentary, happy about the fact that Suresh Raina wasn’t over-shadowed by MS Dhoni anymore, and could finally showcase his leadership skills when he plays for the new franchise Gujarat Lions in IPL 2016.
