  • Suresh Raina announced retirement minutes after MS Dhoni called it quits from international cricket

  • Fans unhappy with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina had been two constants in India’s middle-order in white-ball cricket for a long time. The iconic duo added many match-winning partnerships together, often coming to India’s rescue when the top order would fail to fire.


The two played 73 innings together, in which they amassed 3585 runs at an average of 56.90.

Dhoni and Raina also lifted the 2011 World Cup together, when India beat Sri Lanka in a tense final.


Raina was also part of the team when Dhoni captained India to the Champions Trophy triumph in England two years later.

Overall, the southpaw played 18 Tests, 226 ODIs and 78 T20Is scoring almost 9000 runs in his international career. When it comes to the shortest format of the game, the left-handed batsman is literally a beast and loves taking the attack to the opposition. This is the reason why he is termed as Mr IPL.

In a whopping 193 IPL matches, Raina has clubbed 5368 runs while mostly batting at number three and is only second to Virat Kohli in the list of highest run-getters. The fans on social media, along with Dhoni, also congratulated Raina for a successful career and it is clear that they will miss him too. Moreover, they slammed the BCCI for not tweeted anything for the man who served Indian cricket for over 13 years.
