There is absolutely no doubt that Suresh Raina has been a great limited overs player for Team India since the last few years. He has the ability to finish games single handedly and he has done that for Team India and Chennai Super Kings more often than not with great finesse.
If you had to put a face to the Indian Premier League, Cric Crak feels that the face should be of Suresh Raina. He has surely been one of the best players for the men in yellow since the first IPL season and that’s exactly why he finds himself in the top 3 highest run getters of the IPL.
Having said that, he has not had a great stint with his new team Gujarat Lions and has also struggled to find a place in Team India. Suresh Raina last played an international game for India in January 2015 barring a lone T20 against England earlier this year. Injuries have also played a major part in his absence from the team and unfortunately for him the journey ahead doesn’t seem easy.
5 Problems Raina Might Face To Make A Comeback
1. A Perfect Competition Market
India is known to produce batsman traditionally. Yes there is only one Sachin Tendulkar but we have a lot of talented batsman in the country, more than anywhere in the world rather. With Raina having been out of the team since more than 2 years and inform players like Rahane and Manish Pandey knocking the door on a regular basis , Raina would need to have a perfect Ranji Trophy or IPL to catch some eyeballs.
