Born on November 27, 1986, Suresh Raina today turns 32. And on the occasion of his birthday, former and current team India players wished the left-handed batsman. Raina is currently not part of the Indian team and is looking to make a comeback. Earlier, in July he played against England in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and T20Is but failed to win back his place in the team. Meanwhile, as it is his birthday, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag were among the prominent names to wish the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), player.
While Tendulkar recalled the lunch on Raina’s last birthday, Sehwag, as always, was on his witty best. “Raina Beeti Jaaye”. Sehwag seemed to have rhymed it perfectly. His post read, “Listening to “Raina Beeti Jaaye”, Shaam na aaaaaye . Same happens when @ImRaina is in full flow with the bat, feel like shaam na aaye. Wish you luck and happiness. #HappyBirthdayRaina,” tweeted Sehwag. Suresh Raina Takes a Stunning Catch Against Odisha on Day 1 of Ranji Trophy 2018-19 (Watch Video)

Raina is currently participating in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2018-19 and in two matches has scored 10 and 41 against Odisha and Services respectively. Raina is a vital part of CSK, the reigning IPL champions, and apparently was among the players retained by the franchise ahead of the 2019 auction.

The left-hander has so far played 18 Tests, 226 ODI and 78 T20Is for India. He has scored over 5000 runs in ODIs. As of now, it looks difficult that Raina will be part of the Indian squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 to be held in England. He, however, will be looking to perform well in the IPL which is scheduled ahead of the World Cup and who knows he makes a comeback. Wish you all the best and a happy birthday!
