It looks like Suresh Raina has learnt to tackle the media from Indian limited over captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the left-handed batsman, now on Indian Premier League duty with new franchise Gujarat Lions, gave a witty reply when asked about his preference for a coach of the national team.

The Indian Cricket Team’s coaching post is lying empty after Technical Director Ravi Shastri’s contract got over and there is a lot of speculations over the next India coach. So, during a recent press conference in Mumbai, the Gujarat Lions  captain was asked that being a part of the national team, would he be more comfortable with an Indian or a foreign coach?

Raina, who usually takes the tried and tested path while replying to journalists, showed off the inner Dhoni in him, saying, “Sir, tell me one thing, will you be more comfortable with your own wife or somebody else.” The media room broke into a laughter hearing Raina’s jibe.

This video uploaded on YouTube by ABP Majha showed the Indian left-hander mocking the journalist. Suresh Raina’s comments can be viewed between 05.17 minutes to 6.25 minute.

However, on a serious note, Raina said that appointment of the national coach is BCCI’s job and he would be happy with any coach which the board selects. He further said that being a senior member of the team, it is his responsibility to perform according to his abilities and take the team forward.
