Kohli and Raina have played a lot of cricket together and hence share a great rapport. However, the latter has been out of the national squad for quite a while now and will want to score big runs in the domestic matches in order to make a comeback. On the other hand, Virat Kohli has emerged as a batting juggernaut and is crashing records left right and center. As of now, he has been rested for ongoing India vs Bangladesh T20I series and is enjoying his off time. The 31-year old will resume his on-field duties during the India vs Bangladesh Test series.
