New Delhi: Suresh Raina has been out of the Indian team for some time and is now looking for a comeback. He seems positive despite having not played a Test match or a 50-overs game for India since 2015. Then there is the matter of the T20s, Raina’s favourite format, and he is out of the reckoning from there too. But he has his chin up as could be noted when he talked about a comeback.
“I am working hard and there is nothing tough in life, if you enjoy your process and enjoy your cricket and I have always done that,” he said. “When I got injured that was a difficult time of my life. So it (the comeback) is nothing and I am enjoying it and things will come in my time,” the former Chennai Super Kings player said.
There were reports that Raina failed the Yo Yo Test. Asked about it, Raina quipped, “You (the reporters) speak to BCCI.” Raina-led Uttar Pradesh lost to Railways in the Ranji Trophy opener after they were bundled out for 72 in the fourth innings chasing 94.
On the loss, Raina said, “The boys are still learning. The wicket was little different. We have still five more games to go and after that match we had a chat. “In the Duleep trophy you have seen wicket and it’s not in my hand to win the toss. So we had to bat on the fourth day and it wasn’t easy,” he signed off. (With PTI inputs)
