Off late Suresh Raina has emerged as a very wise, contented and responsible player of Team India. Today during the first ODI against Sri Lanka at Cuttack, he has played a very responsible inning yet again. Oh yes, right from the very beginning, as per the expectation of millions of the fans and especially captain Virat Kohli, Raina played a very sensible inning and started hitting the balls from the very first over. He has scored vital 52 runs in just 34 balls. This was perhaps needed to maintain the tempo of the game. This includes 4 fours and 3 sixes.

However as soon as Raina scored 44 runs, he accomplished another milestone as he has completed his 5000 runs mark. He is the 11th Indian Cricketer who has achieved this milestone. This also happened to be 200th ODI of Suresh Raina. The way Raina is giving tremendous contributions every time he comes to the field, we do hope that his talent will play a key role in boosting India’s chances of lifting the World Cup. His excellent fielding is also an added advantage. Also, at times he manages to get a timely break through his bowling as well. Overall he is a complete package. Hope to see him achieving many more glorious records. Best Wishes.
