CHENNAI: In a major blow to Chennai Super Kings, experienced batsman Suresh Raina has been ruled out of the franchise's next two Indian Premier League matches due to a calf injury.

The news of Raina's absence from the upcoming two matches comes just a few hours after Chennai Super Kings' lost their home advantage after all of their remaining home matches moved to Pune.

The 31-year-old sustained the injury during CSK's happy homecoming at MA Chidambaram Stadium, where the home franchise went on to clinch a five-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the last-over thriller on Tuesday.

Raina needed medical attention on Tuesday after completing a single against West Indies' Sunil Narine in the 10th over of the chase. He struggled to run between the wickets before eventually dismissing for 14 off 12 balls.

Raina experienced pain and required medical attention from the team physio Tommy Simsek after completing a single against West Indies' Sunil Narine in the 10th over. He struggled to run between the wickets before being eventually dismissed for 14 runs.

As a result, the Indian batsman will miss CSK's next two IPL games against Kings XI Punjab on April 15 and Rajasthan Royals on April 20.

It will be the first time that Raina will miss a match for the Chennai Super Kings, having played all of their134 previous IPL matches and helped them make it to the playoffs on eight occasions, and win the trophy twice.
