Twitter erupts as Suresh Raina makes a comeback in T20I squad against South Africa

Posted On

Left-handed batsman Suresh Raina was on Sunday rewarded for his recent domestic performance with a recall to the Indian T20I squad for the three-match series against South Africa starting February 18.

Raina has also overcome fitness issues to make to the 16-man squad led by Virat Kohli.

The southpaw played his last international match for India, a T20 against England, in February 2017 before being sidelined due to fitness issues.

Passing the mandatory ‘Yo-Yo’ test also paved the way for his return.

He was also in top form in the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament, smashing an unbeaten hundred and a couple of half-centuries for Uttar Pradesh.

Fans on Twitter expressed their happiness as Raina has made his way back to the team after a year.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
