Suresh Raina Retirement: Former India all-rounder Suresh Raina has announced his retirement from all formats of cricket. The 35-year-old took to social media platform Twitter to make the announcement.
“It has been an absolute honour to represent my country & state UP. I would like to announce my retirement from all formats of Cricket. I would like to thank @BCCI, @UPCACricket, @ChennaiIPL, @ShuklaRajiv sir & all my fans for their support and unwavering faith in my abilities,” Raina tweeted.
He went unsold at the Indian Premier League (IPL) mega players’ auction earlier this year. Surprisingly, even Chennai Super Kings didn’t bid for the player who had brought laurels for them in the past.
Raina, who scored 5528 runs in 205 IPL matches, was not retained by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) last year and was not bought by the rest of the teams in the players’ auction. Raina has been practicing for the last one week at the RPL Cricket Ground in Ghaziabad.
