Suresh Raina will look at South Africa T-20 series. Johannesburg, After giving a tough fight to South Africa in the one-day series, the enthusiastic Indian team would like to beat defeat in T20 too. The Indian team will be examining T-20 legend Suresh Raina in this series. Raina is back in the team after a long time and the eyes will remain with him.
In this series, Suresh Raina will look after all who are returning to the national team after a year. Raina’s return from the Indian perspective is the most important aspect. He has not played one-day matches since 2015 and he last played a few years ago in the T20 series against England. Raina then scored 104 in three matches with the help of a fifty.
Raina has not been selected in the team despite the good performance in the IPL from the side of the Gujarat Lions. Later it was found that he could not pass mandatory yo-yo test and hence he was not selected. He passed this test in December and scored a century in nine matches and scored 314 runs in nine matches with the help of two half-centuries in Uttar Pradesh in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Raina is likely to make a place in the final eleven, but his performance will be closely watched as India have to play T20 triangular series in Sri Lanka in March also. Raina can perform well here and clear the path to return to the ODI team for next year’s World Cup. Indian team management is still looking for an all-around option, which could fit in the middle order, especially the number four batsman.
