Australia’s legendary Chinaman bowler Brad Hogg feels that Suresh Raina might not be able to play for India again. Suresh Raina last played for India in 2018. However, he is still working hard to make a comeback.
Brad Hogg was asked by a fan on his YouTube channel whether Suresh Raina will be able to return again? Brad Hogg said about this,
“Suresh Raina is a great left-handed batsman and he is also a great fielder. However if you look at the current Indian line up, Virat Kohli is showing confidence in the young players at the moment. Apart from this, Shreyas Iyer also does quite well at number 4. And Suresh Raina can bat at this place. I don’t see him playing much down. He is a batsman who plays at 3 or 4. However I don’t think he has any role in the Indian team. ”
Suresh Raina has started training
Left-handed veteran batsman Suresh Raina was to return via the IPL 2020. However, IPL was postponed due to coronavirus. Along with this, the game was also stopped due to lockdown. However, gradually as everything is opening, the players are also beginning to train at their level.
Suresh Raina has started training and has also practiced with Rishabh Pant. Suresh Raina himself released the video of his training on social media.

However, after the ODI series against England in 2018, he has not got a chance to play in the Indian team. Suresh Raina will be eyeing the IPL to be held in the UAE and would like to put forth his claim for the T20 World Cup by performing well.
