Suresh Raina is well known for his fielding skills and he stunned everyone on Tuesday with his brilliance during the ongoing match between Uttar Pradesh and Odisha in Ranji Trophy 2018.
Playing for Uttar Pradesh, Raina pulled off a stunning one-hand catch at first slip to dismiss Sujit Lenka in the 67th over of the match.
The 31-year-old Raina had less than a second to react but ended up taking a sensational catch to see Lenka off on 46 off 98 deliveries. Raina later took to social media to share a video of the catch and captioned it with a song.
“Idhar chala mai, udhar chala! Jane kahan mai kidhar chala…. are fisal gayaaaaaaa … par catch to le liya. Had a good day at the match today… lets gear up for tomorrow,” Raina wrote on Twitter.

Raina last played for India in a limited-overs series against England in July this year. He has over 7,000 runs in international cricket with seven tons. The emergence of a number of middle-order batsmen in the national team has reduced Raina’s chances of returning to the side but his fielding performance shows that he still attaches a lot of significance to his fitness.
