Suresh Raina

Suresh Raina is a left-handed middle order batsman who plays for the Indian cricket team and Uttar Pradesh in the domestic competitions. Born in Ghaziabad, Raina is also an efficient add with his off-spin bowling and a big asset in the field. He is the second youngest player to captain India when he led the side to an away ODI and T20 series win in the West Indies. Raina boasted of being the only player to have played all IPL matches for Chennai Super Kings and then Gujarat Lions before he missed one game for the birth of his daughter. On the international stage, Raina became the first Indian cricketer to score a century in all three formats of the game. Raina is back in Chennai. After captaining Gujarat for two season, the left-handed batsman will be playing under MS Dhoni again, a partnership that first happened 10 years ago in IPL.
