Talking about CSK’s iconic players, one can rarely forget T20-specialist and star batsman Suresh Raina. Along with Dhoni, the veteran batsman formed a formidable middle-order partnership to help Chennai win crucial matches. What more is that Raina went on to become IPL’s highest run scorer ever.

The 32-year-old can write another record to his name by becoming the first batsman to cross the 5,000 run-mark. Raina is just 15 runs away from achieving the feat, as his tally stands at 4,985 runs. His immediate competitor for the feat is Virat Kohli, who has scored 4,948 runs.
