Suresh Raina:

Lately, not being in the best of form, the middle-order batsman Suresh Raina could be dropped from the India’s squad for ICC Champions Trophy.

However, he has been played a pivotal role for India while donning the national jersey in the previous encounters.

The left-handed batsman Raina is a live wire on the field and in England where bigger grounds would test deep fielders, Raina is the one, a skipper could bet on with the rocket-like arm and the release of the ball is subtle of the 30-year-old batsman, who could bowl off-spin as well.

Raina has played 10 matches in England where he has scored 359 runs at an average of 39.88 while having the strike rate of 112.18 which further include a hundred at Cardiff in 2014.

Raina has played 223 ODIs for India in which he has amassed 5,568 runs at an average of 35.46.

However, he has played last ODI against Sri Lanka in 2015.
