New Delhi: Everyone is aware of the friendship of former Team India captain MS Dhoni and former cricketer Suresh Raina. The friendship of both is very old, due to which Raina said goodbye to international cricket soon after Mahi’s retirement.
People say that Suresh Raina, despite his poor performance, was able to make a place in Team India because of Dhoni and because of this his international cricket career lasted so long.
Suresh Raina replied
All these things said or not, make Suresh Raina very upset. That’s why Suresh Raina has spoken openly on these questions in his book ‘Believe’.
Suresh Raina wrote, ‘It is said that I got opportunities in Team India because of Dhoni but I want to tell you that I was part of Team India because of my ability. It hurts a lot when people associate our friendship with getting a place in my Team India’.
