Twitter erupts as Suresh Raina smashes 126 off 59 balls at Eden Gardens

Suresh Raina roared back to form in style at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The left-hander blitzed his way to a century in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament.

The 31-year-old left-hander has endured a torrid time with the bat. He has found it difficult to get runs in recent times, in Ranji Trophy and the zonal phase of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. However, it was different on Monday.

Raina, who is the captain of Uttar Pradesh team, smashed 13 fours and seven sixes to remain unbeaten on his T20 career-best 126 off 59. His strike rate was 213.56.

Thanks to Raina’s scintillating knock that UP posted a mammoth total of 235/3 in 20 overs against Bengal. His superb innings was watched at the venue and appreciated by former India captain Sourav Ganguly.

Expectedly, Bengal began their innings in style but crumbled under pressure only to be bowled out for 160 falling well 75 runs short of the target.

Twitter was elated as their favourite cricketer coming back to form with the bat and welcomed him back into his groove. His fans also hoped that he continues in the same vein in the upcoming matches.

Here’s how they reacted:
