Virender Sehwag posted on Twitter a picture of a room with a balcony and wrote: “This is the difference. Jai Jai Balcony. Mazaak hai, jyada seriously mat lo. (It’s a joke, don’t take it seriously).”

This was a reference to rumours from last year that Raina returned to India from the UAE before IPL 2020 because he was not given a room with a balcony by the CSK management.
