Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh Express Shock Over Suresh Raina's Retirement
Suresh Raina was Sudama to Dhoni’s Krishna, a bond now firmly entrenched with Raina’s decision to follow Dhoni into retirement.
MS Dhoni, the former India skipper and India’s most successful captain in limited-overs cricket, announced his retirement on Saturday. Suresh Raina was Sudama to Dhoni’s Krishna, a bond now firmly entrenched with Raina’s decision to follow Dhoni into retirement.
“It was nothing but lovely playing with you, Mahi . With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you in this journey. Thank you India. Jai Hind,” Raina posted on his Instagram page.
Raina’s CSK teammate Harbhajan Singh, however, expressed his shock over the 33-year old’s decision. He said, “Quite shocked about Raina’s retirement. Still feel you have a lot to give to the game in blue, with age and fitness on ur side but as they say you know when you know. All the best for your 2nd inn. God bless you!”
Rohit Sharma also joined in to express his shock, saying, “Bit shocking but I guess you feel it when you feel it. Good career bro, have a great retirement, still remember the time when we came into the squad Grinning face with smiling eyes best wishes moving forward.”
The 33-year-old is among the few who scored centuries across formats having played 18 Tests, 226 ODIs and 78 T20 Internationals with nearly 8000 international runs. His best moment was a crucial unbeaten knock in a tricky World Cup quarter-final against Australia during the triumphant 2011 campaign. His ODI career had its highs and lows. But T20s were his spiritual home in cricket, offering him the elusive respect.
