Suresh Raina Catches Up With MS Dhoni And Harbhajan Singh During 2nd ODI at Lord’s

Former India batter Suresh Raina caught up with Mahendra Singh Dhoni during the second ODI match between India and England at Lord’s. The two batters shared several match-winning partnerships for India during their playing days. Interestingly the duo retirement announced retirement from international cricket the same day on 15 August 2020. They shared a great camaraderie off the field as both of them also played for the same franchise – Chennai Super Kings for a long period of time.

However, CSK released Raina before IPL 2022 and the southpaw remained unsold in the auction. While Dhoni, who relinquished the captaincy ahead of the season, returned to the role mid-season after Ravindra Jadeja decided to step down.

“Less grass for sure but looks like there is some moisture in the pitch. Looking at the size of the ground, we thought it’s better to have a score on the board.”

“It (Lord’s) is one of the best stadiums in the world, so the guys are keen to play well here. Sun is out, so perfect conditions,” said Sharma on his decision to bowl first.
