Further the cricketer posted another adorable picture of his wife and his newborn daughter and captioned it as, “can’t wait to see you both”. The 29-year-old Gujarat Lions skipper announced the arrival of his daughter on his Twitter account and posted a picture which was captioned, “Welcome my beautiful daughter. #GraciaRaina. Long wait but totally worth it. #ProudFather. She is getting dressed up for her photoshootz,” Raina tweeted, adding: “Here she comes our beautiful angel Gracia Raina.” Raina missed the Indian Premier League match for the first time in nine years just to be with his wife Priyanka and welcome their baby in Netherlands.
Gujarat Lions coach Brad Hodge was quoted by Press Trust of India saying, “He is not coming. He is with his wife and child. So, this will be the first time in the history of the IPL that Raina will be missing a match.” “It is a huge loss if someone has almost 4,000 runs in the IPL history. Having said that we have got some players who can step into his shoes. We have players like Dwayne Smith, Aaron Finch, Dinesh Karthik and Dwayne Bravo – they are all match winners. They can step up and win a game from any position,” he added. Raina and Priyanka got married in early 2015 and their wedding affair was a huge affair.
