The prolific run-getter in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Suresh Raina, hasn’t been selected in the 15 member squad of team India for the upcoming ICC Champions trophy.
With a strike rate of above 95 and an average of 35 plus in One Day Internationals (ODI), Raina is one of the most successful middle-order batsmen in India and also has a good record in England where the Champions Trophy will be played this year.
Raina is highly disappointed after he failed to make the cut in final 15 players of the big ICC tournament.
“What can I say now? It’s really disappointing and hurting. I was expecting a comeback call this time,” the south told Hindustan Times.
“I have been performing well and consistently, proving myself in the IPL. Certainly, it is not on the expected lines but I would let my bat do the talking as I am sure of my comeback in the Indian squad one day,” said Raina, who has been included in the 5 member standby list for the upcoming ICC event.
Well, the 30-year-batsman hasn’t played an ODI since 2015 but still in the shorter format of the game, he has been an inspiration for youngsters.
