Suresh Raina explained why he announced his International Cricket retirement. Moments after India’s greatest captain MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket, Suresh Raina too announced his retirement.
The middle order batsman Raina told that he had made up his mind to announce his retirement as soon as Dhoni did.
“I knew Dhoni would announce his retirement upon reaching Chennai, so I was ready,” Raina said.
“I, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, and Karn Sharma reached Ranchi on 14 August with the chartered plane, and picked up Mahi bhai and Monu Singh.”
“After announcing our retirement, we hugged and cried a lot. I, Piyush, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav and Karn sat together after that, talked about our careers and our relationship. We partied during the night,” added Raina.

“We had already made up our minds to retire on August 15,” he stated.
“Dhoni’s jersey number is 7 and mine is 3. Put it together and it makes 73. And on August 15, India completed 73 years of independence, so there couldn’t have been a better day.”
“Dhoni began his career on in December (2004) against Bangladesh in Chittagong, while I made my debut in July (2005) against Sri Lanka. Both of us almost began together in international cricket, remained together at CSK, and so we now retired together and will continue to play in IPL together,” he concluded.
To the fans, do not get disheartened, we will be seeing the duo in IPL. 🙂
