Suresh Raina knee surgery

Suresh Raina releases a statement after knee surgery, reveals immediate future

Indian star cricketer Suresh Raina underwent surgery on his left knee for the second time on Friday in Amsterdam and is now on his way to recovery.

Raina, on Saturday, took to social media to keep fans updated about his health.


“I am out of surgery and healing steadily, for which I thank my doctors, family, friends, and everyone who has wished me good health & speedy recovery.

“The issue began way back. It was 2007 when I underwent my maiden knee surgery and later, I was back on the field, giving the game my 100%, all thanks to my trainers & doctors.


“However, a nagging discomfort returned the last couple of years. During the episodes of niggling pain, to avoid any impact on my game, my trainers kept me going & helped me a lot in training my muscles well so that it would take the load off of the knee.

“To be honest, second knee surgery was a tough call to make because I knew it would put me off-action for a few months and I wasn’t ready for it until a few weeks ago when the pain had gotten a bit much and I knew there was only one way out of this.


“I hope I’m up on my feet, on the field and ready to give my best very soon again,” Raina said in his statement.

The 32-year-old southpaw had a niggling knee problem since last season and will require at least six weeks of intense rehabilitation for recovery, which effectively rules him out of the better part of India’s domestic season, starting later this month.
