International Career

ODI Career

Suresh Raina made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka on July 30 2005. After a sensational start, though, his form dipped over the next year, and that was followed by a serious injury which meant that the career had hit a roadblock towards the latter part of 2007. The talent was obvious, but Raina also needed to translate that on the field. That’s when the IPL Caravan debuted in 2008.

Raina was on the bench through the first half of the 2011 Cricket World Cup as captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni instead went with the in-form Yusuf Pathan. This remained so until the group game against West Indies, in which Raina played in place of an injured Virender Sehwag.

Against defending champions Australia in the quarter-final, Dhoni made a strategic change, omitting Yusuf Pathan in favour of Raina. Raina assisted Yuvraj Singh in a successful run chase through high pressure, making 34 from 28 balls to carry India to victory.

In the semi-final against Pakistan, he batted with tailenders to score an unbeaten 36, contributing to India’s final tally of 260. He also took Younis Khan’s catch off of Yuvraj’s bowling. Suresh Raina played some crucial knocks in the quarter-final and semi-final of the World Cup, which helped India to win the 2011 ICC Cricket WorldCup.

Gary Kirsten, ex-coach of Team India, said Raina won the World Cup for us with some crucial knocks.

He played the 2015 World Cup too, raked up impressive cameos, and even scored a Hundred against Zimbabwe in the last league match.

At his prime form, Raina is the last thing the opposition team wanted. He could score a quickfire 40-50 runs at the back end of the innings, bowl a few economical overs and save crucial runs for his team in the field.

T20I Career

If there is one format that Suresh Raina has entirely owned, then that is the T20 format. He made his T20 debut against South Africa on December 1 2006.

Raina Has now retired from all game forms, but his T20I career record is stellar. In the 78 matches played, he has scored 1,605 runs at an average of 29.18 with one century and five fifties.

Overall, Raina has the highest score of an unbeaten 126 in T20s, with an average of 33.47. He has notched up 48 half-centuries and four centuries in this format.

Apart from Raina, Virat Kohli (7833) and Rohit Sharma (7795) are the only batsmen in the top 10 list of the highest run-getters in T20 cricket.

Test Career

Five years after his ODI debut Suresh Raina made his Test debut, in July 2010, against the same opposition–Sri Lanka. He scored a hundred on his Test debut.

Sri Lanka made 4/642 declared, and India was in trouble at 4/241 when Raina came in to join Sachin Tendulkar. Raina reached the maiden century on debut, becoming one of few Indian players as the pair put on a double century partnership. Yuvraj recovered in time for the Third Test, but the selectors opted to retain Raina.

Raina, however, could never really fit into the scheme of things of the Indian Test camp setup and eventually drifted from the selector’s radar. He played his last Test in 2015.


Raina had captained the Indian team on its tour to Zimbabwe in 2010, making him the second-youngest player to captain India. Under his captaincy, India won the T20 series against Zimbabwe 2-0.

Raina again shouldered a load of captaincy in 2011 when India toured West Indies after the World Cup with captain MS Dhoni rested, and vice-captain Virender Sehwag injured. Gautam Gambhir was named the captain for the One-dayers and T20s with Raina as his deputy. But due to injury, Gautam Gambhir was ruled out, and Raina ultimately captained.

India won the series, and former West-Indian legends highly appreciated his captaincy. He was again declared captain of the young Indian cricket team during the 2014 Bangladesh series 2014 while all the regular players of Indian cricket were rested. He led his team for 2–0 victories in the series.

His performance was also splendid in the low scoring series as he captained the side very aggressively throughout the series. He was praised worldwide for his captaincy skills which he displayed during the 2nd ODI of this series. India was all out, scoring 104 runs while batting first, and Suresh Raina and his young team defended 104 runs and won the match by 54 runs. His captaincy was the deciding factor of this match, along with Stuart Binny’s bowling performance.

During its two-year run, Suresh Raina captained the now-defunct IPL franchise Gujarat Lions.
