#HappyBirthdayRaina trends on Twitter on Suresh Raina's 27th birthday
Lucknow: On occasion of Uttar Pradesh-lad Suresh Raina's 27th birth anniversary on Sunday, his enormous fan following made #HappyBirthdayRaina the top trend on micro-blogging site Twitter.
His fans rushed to the social media platforms to wish him on his big day. Arguably India's best fielder, Raina has played many sensational innings to take India out of pressure situations in international Cricket. His match-winnings partnerships with India's limited-over Cricket skipper MS Dhoni have been highlight of his ravishing career.
The explosive left-handed batsman, who used to be an undivided part of Indian middle-order in limited over Cricket in the recent past, has stayed away from international Cricket since March 2016, when he played for India in World T20 semifinal against West Indies in Mumbai.
Raina has played 18 Tests for India scoring 768 runs in 31 innings at an average of 26.48. He has 7 fifties and a century to his credit in the longest format of the game.
However, the limited-over specialist has far better stats in ODIs as he has represented India in 223 matches and has aggregated 5,568 runs at a healthy average of 35.46. He has slammed 36 fifties and 5 tons in his career. He holds a very impressive strike rate of 93.76 per 100 balls in the format.
He also has impressive stats in T20Is as he has played 62 matches scoring 1203 runs at an average of approximately 30, with 102 being his highest score. He is also a very dependable part-timer with the ball across all formats.
Team Newstrack also wishes Suresh Raina a very happy birthday and a bright cricketing future ahead.
