Replying on the post, Rhodes wrote a sincere message with a piece of nice advice for the 32-year-old Indian cricketer. Jonty Rhodes Applies for Position of India's Fielding Coach. 

Calling the left-handed batsman an inspiration for many, Rhodes advised Raina to listen to his body. “U have been an inspiration to so many with your incredible work ethic over your career, especially these last couple of years. Listen to your body now my friend - knowing u, u will want to be out training tomorrow #aramse”, the 50-year-old Rhodes wrote. Have a look at the tweet.
