Chennai Super Kings' senior batsman Suresh Raina had a forgettable IPL final against Mumbai Indians.

He first dropped Hardik Pandya, who was batting on 4. Shardul Thakur banged in a short ball, Hardik went up the pull but mistimed it and Raina ended up dropping a dolly at cover.

With the bat, Raina had a chance to redeem himself in chase of 150.


He got a reprieve early as a Mitchell McClenaghan bouncer got the southpaw into a tangle and the umpire thought the ball had brushed Raina's glove on its way to the keeper. However, a successful review gave Raina a life.

However, he couldn't make use of the reprieve as he departed for just eight runs. Raina ended up wasting a delivery as he was trapped plump by Rahul Chahar.

In the 17 games he played, Raina managed to score 344 runs with an unbeaten 83 as his highest. He scored three fifties in this season.
