Speaking of Raina’s cricketing prowess, the left-handed batsman was a sweet timer of the ball who could torment the best of the bowlers. Although he had some issues against the short deliveries, the dasher somehow managed to score runs in crucial situations.

Apart from his skills with the bat, Raina was a live wire on the field, and his ability to chip in with handy overs made him a captain’s delight. However, dip in form kept him out of the national team since 2018, and subsequently, he announced his retirement earlier this year. Nevertheless, Raina is expected to continue featuring in IPL.
