Suresh Raina follows in the footsteps of his mentor MS Dhoni even in this journey of retirement

15th August is celebrated all over India as Independence Day. It is a day of pride for all the Indians. But on India’s 74th Independence Day, one of India’s greatest ever captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni officially announced “from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired.” which has left all the Indians in utter shock.

MS Dhoni posted this on Instagram on 7:29 pm on Saturday and asked everyone to consider himself as retired from that very moment.

Suresh Raina sees Dhoni as his mentor and both of them shared a close bond. They played for the Indian national cricket team and IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings together. They had a very good relationship both on and off the field.

Moments after MS Dhoni announced his retirement on 7:29 pm, Suresh Raina also posted on Instagram saying: “It was nothing but lovely playing with you, @mahi7781 . With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you in this journey. Thank you India. Jai Hind!” This type of bond is somewhat unseen in today’s world.

Suresh Raina has been one of the best white-ball players for India over the years. Although he played 18 tests scoring a century, he will be remembered for his limited-overs cricket.

His wife posted on Twitter: “Though I’m still processing this! All I can say is I’m bursting with pride, Immense pride. My heart is just filled with respect & gratitude ❤️❤️❤️ @ImRaina.”

Raina’s best moment in the Indian colours was arguably the crucial unbeaten knock in a tricky World Cup quarter-final match against Australia in the 2011 World Cup. India went on to lift the World Cup. He is also one of the best players of IPL till date and has numerous records to his name.
