Raina hopes this IPL season will be the key factor in his comeback to nation side


India Stylish batsman Suresh Raina who is currently trying to make a comeback recently said that he is just one good season away from making into the national team again. CSK middle order batsmen Raina who has been retained by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for a whopping 11 Crores also said that he is looking forward to play with the franchise again and a good performance in the upcoming season might make way for him in the senior team.

The 31-year-old last played in a T20 international for India against England in January 2017 and since then has been out of the team due to fitness related issues. I’ve played all those tournaments and domestic competitions and I haven’t missed a single game. It’s just a matter of one good season and I will be back because I am a fighter and I love what I got from my team. India and always try to win games for my country and coming back to CSK will give me one more season to improve as a person and a player,” Raina said

The number 4 position in ODI’s and T20I’s has been an area of concern for the Indian team recently. The team in the last twelve months has tried many players for the spot including Manish Pandey, Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav. But none have been able to grab the opportunity. Experienced Raina is now eying to fulfil the spot and seal his place in the side for the 2019 World Cup. The middle-order batsman has played 223 ODI's for India and has scored 5568 runs with an average 35.46.
