The 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to begin, with just few days remaining for India’s cash-rich tournament. In the opener of season 12, defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Ahead of the first game, CSK has released a new version of its anthem, ‘Whitstle Podu’, featuring Suresh Raina. Raina, CSK’s MS Dhoni’s deputy can be seen singing the song, wearing sunglasses.
The video is interesting to watch as Raina makes it cool with his typical antics and style. Raina has also left CSK fans in awe who are quite liking the new anthem.
Sharing the video on Twitter, CSK captioned the video “The whistlemax #ChinnaThala you just can’t get enough of! #WhistlePodu.” Raina is famously known as ‘Chinna Thala’ in Chennai which means Chota Thala, or deputy.
CSK has been through a lot of criticism ever since match-fixing controversy and faced the 2-year ban from the tournament. CSK, in 2018, returned back to tournament with a bang, winning the title for 3rd time. The team has begun their training session with players practicing for the upcoming season.
