Suresh Raina Announces retirement from all formats of the game

After a glorifying career of 20 years, former Indian batter Suresh Raina decided to put up his shoes permanently. Raina announced his retirement on Tuesday from all formats of cricket. Eventually, the batter bid farewell to international cricket on the 15th of August, 2020 following the path of MS Dhoni.



Now he decided to bid adieu to all the formats of the game. He took Twitter to announce his decision. He didn't forget to thank all the people who supported him throughout his career including Chennai Super Kings, Rajeev Shukla, BCCI, and Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association.

Raina tweeted, "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."

Suresh Raina was one of those impactful cricketers who used to get handy for the team. He is one of the very few batters who smashed centuries in all three formats. Being a member of the World Cup-winning team in 2011 will certainly be his biggest achievement. Without this, he was part of the Indian team that won the Champions Trophy in England in 2013 under MS Dhoni's leadership.

Raina had an eye-catching IPL career as well. He won 4 IPL trophies with Chennai Super Kings. Raina is even named Mr. IPL for his remarkable batting records in the IPL. But the southpaw went unsold in the auction of IPL, 2022. From then, he was away from professional cricket and finally bid adieu to the game permanently.

The impact Raina left in the game, not only with his batting but also with fielding, will certainly be a benchmark for the upcoming youngsters who will play the game.
