Raina on his comeback in IPL, look what the CSK all-rounder said


Suresh Raina, a former all-rounder, has become a social media sensation for his response to a question regarding his possible comeback to international cricket. This happened during a press conference after a match against India Maharajas. A reporter asked Raina about his return to the sport.

Raina gave a savage response to the reporter

“Everyone wants you back in the IPL after your performance tonight in Legends League Cricket.”

Raina was amused by the question. He denied any chance of a comeback while referencing Shahid Afridi.

“Main Suresh Raina hoon. Main Shahid Afridi nahi hoon. Retirement le chuka hoon (I’m Suresh Raina, not Shahid Afridi. I’ve taken retirement),”

he said.

Former player Shahid Afridi has returned to the sport several times after retiring, which is the reason for the reference.
