Suresh Raina Suresh Raina - Indian Cricketer Height: 1.75 m DOB: November 27, 1986, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh

Known as India's finest T20 specialist, Suresh Raina has burst into the international scene as a teenage prodigy during the Greg Chappell era. His power, class and elegance were a hallmark of the Uttar Pradesh batsman's status in the international scene since his ODI debut in 2005. Raina's form dipped over the years and since then his call-up to the national team has been more of a switch. The batsman has been chipping in with his play whenever the opportunity was provided has his role became more of a guy who helps the team project a score. Raina's form dropped after the UP batsman was unable to clear the yo-yo test which left him quite disappointed but made him prove a point failure. After clearing the test, Raina burst back into the scene for India's tour of South Africa in 2018 and since then the Indian fans have been witnessing classic Raina back to his beast form.
