What a wonderful performance by the talented Suresh Raina in the CL T20 finals against KKR in Bengaluru. CSK has become champion mainly due to the fire brand batting of Raina as he scored 109 runs off just 62 deliveries. Raina smashed 6 sixes and 10 fours all around the ground.
He has also successfully created the following two records:
1) Raina has become the only batsman to have scored a century in IPL, World cup T20 and CL T20
2) Suresh Raina has become the first Indian player to 200 sixes in T20
During the semi finals against Kings XI Punjab, he had also helped his team with his bowling as he took 2 wickets for 10 runs. Also, he has got a pretty good batting average of 32.65 in T20I format.
Keeping in view the fact that India is a strong contender for the next world cup to be held in February 2015, the form of Suresh Raina will provide immense relief to captain MS Dhoni.
