Suresh Raina burst onto the worldwide scene as an intelligently gifted 19-year-old amid the Greg Chappell administration in 2005. He quickly awed everybody with his capacity to hit the ball neatly, his scope of shots and his personality. Suresh Raina looked set to accomplish enormous when the wheels of an effective presentation came marginally unhinged.
Rather, in 2006, he battled. Suresh Raina had a less than impressive normal of 27.77 and a poor strike rate of 69.63. Furthermore, this was crosswise over 26 ODIs he played for India that year. After a lackluster display against South Africa towards the finish of the year, he was dropped from the group.

As he was to later say, it was an exceptionally troublesome time. Suresh Raina was out of commission for near a half year, and in the wake of recouping, Suresh Raina set aside his opportunity to recover his touch.
The turnaround occurred for Suresh Raina amid the IPL 2008, in which he was purchased by the Chennai (CSK) at a high cost of USD 650,000.

As the year advanced, Suresh Raina gradually solidified his situation in the Indian group for the ODIs, thinking of imperative cameos towards the finish of the innings or shoring up the innings if wickets had fallen early. He got a couple of chances up the request as well, yet with India’s best request containing Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina primary part was continually going to be in the lower center request.
Suresh Raina might not have had the enormous numbers in ODIs, but rather his commitments to the group are difficult to be estimated by negligible details. For instance, his thumps of 34 not out against Australia and 36 not out against Pakistan, in the quarter-last and semi-last of the World Cup 2011, were significant to the group.

He began his Test profession with a blast, by scoring a century on make a big appearance against Sri Lanka, however in the 16 Tests that he played from that point onward, he arrived at the midpoint of just around 28.
The 2011 Test arrangement against England uncovered Suresh Raina shortcoming against pace and swing and his disappointment as a batsman saw him being dropped from the Indian Test squad.

Suresh Raina conveyed regular exhibitions in the IPL for Chennai. CSK held him in 2011, and he went ahead to end up the main player in IPL history to cross 400 keeps running in each season. Suresh Raina kept on doing admirably in 2012 also and turned into the principal player in the historical backdrop of IPL to cross the sign of 2,000 runs. The same could be said in regards to 2013 in which he collected 548 runs and scored his lady IPL ton against Punjab.
Suresh Raina shape in ODIs since 2013 has not been that awesome.

In the main ODI against West Indies in November 2013, Suresh Raina was in charge of getting three vital wickets and limiting the restriction to a small aggregate. He was given a ticket to visit both South Africa and New Zealand, however, he neglected to set up an amazing show. In the end, he was dropped from the squad for the Asia Cup.

He additionally had an incredible 2014 Champions League T20, where he scored a glimmering hundred in the last to enable CSK to win the title for the second time.
Having had a decent keep running with the bat in the ODI design, India took Suresh Raina to Australia with the Test group. He was given an open door in the last Test at the SCG, yet neglected to snatch the open door as he packed away a couple.

In the Tests, the resistance utilized the short ball strategy and improved of the Uttar Pradesh fellow however in the shorter configurations with just a single being allowed, Suresh Raina could work his way around it. In any case, as far back as the two bouncer lead has become possibly the most important factor even in the ODIs, Suresh Raina appears to confront the warmth, hesitant to go ahead the front foot, where his essential diversion is. The arrangement of the poor run has proceeded for long with a couple of good scores in the middle. He has been a vital machine gear-piece in the Indian center request, and without he being in touch, it looks somewhat dodgy.
