Suresh Raina back in UP cricket
Suresh Raina is all set on a comeback trail to Cricket, as he will ply his trade for his home state Uttar Pradesh in the Dommestic Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. The cricketer, who recently announced his retirement from International cricket in August this year, and missed the IPL season too, will be playing competetive cricket after a long period.
Raina has been away from the game for more than one year but has been keeping himself fit and training hard for the upcoming season of domestic cricket and hopefully the next IPL season. Raina had pulled out of the recently concluded IPL season due to personal reasons but will most likely feature in the 2021 season.
Raina informed his fans through his Twitter account, as he was back at training at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur with his teammates Priyam Garg and Ankit Rajpoot. Suresh Raina did not play for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL due to the coronavirus scare and in his absence, Chennai Super Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in their history.
