Gracia looks on as father Raina grabs a bite from God of Cricket!
Mumbai: A happy start of 31st Birthday for Indian cricketer Suresh Raina with his wife and daughter soon turned out to be a wonderful one when master blaster Sachin Tendulkar invited him at lunch in order to wish the former in his own special style.
While Raina was showered with wishes by fans from across the world, he chose to spend his special day with wife Priyanka and daughter Gracia in Mumbai but soon the plan changed happily as Tendulkar wished him in a special manner by inviting Raina and family to his place for lunch.
The Master Blaster also shared a photo of the cricketer after the lunch and tweeted, “It was a pleasure having @ImRaina, Priyanka and the adorable Gracia over for lunch today. #HappyBirthdayRaina Have a good one!”
The photo shows a cute moment when Raina gets to eat from the hands of the God of Cricket himself as his daughter looks on in an adorable manner.
Suresh Raina’s career is anything but impressive. In 223 ODIs Raina has scored 5568 runs at an average of 35.46. He has also played 18 Test matches but failed to make an equal impression.
But it is in the shortest format where Raina has excelled the most. In 65 T20I that he played for India, Raina has notched up 1307 runs and has a phenomenal strike rate of 132.96. He is also the first Indian player to hit a T20I century. This was after he scored 101 in just 60 balls against South Africa in 2010.
