Suresh Raina Biography

Suresh Kumar Raina is an Indian cricketer from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. He is an attacking left-handed middle-order batsman and an occasional off-spin bowler. He plays for Uttar Pradesh in all forms of domestic cricket and is the vice-captain of Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. He is also the highest run-getter in the IPL. Raina made his ODI debut in 2005 against Sri Lanka at the age of 18. However, his Test debut came only five years later, in 2010, against the same opposition. He earned his first man of the match award in the subsequent ODI series after scoring an unbeaten 81* in a successful run-chase at Faridabad. On 25 June 2008, he scored his maiden hundred against Hong Kong during the 2008 Asia Cup, the second fastest century in Indian ODI history. He scored 84 of 69 against Pakistan and 116 of 107 against Bangladesh, in next two matches. Hence, he won man of the match award successively three times. After the 2011 World Cup, Suresh Raina took over as captain of the ODI side for the tour of the West Indies; India won the series, but Raina averaged just 16.4. Raina was a part of India's World Cup winning team of 2011. He is the only Indian player to have scored a century in all formats of international cricket.
