Suresh Raina was there too

Suresh Raina - looks like a complete chump, bats like a dreamWith Virender Sehwag doing some spectacular repairs to his surprisingly ordinary one-day record, it’s easy to overlook his juvenile, boundary-hitting accomplice, Suresh Raina.

Sehwag followed his 44 ball 78 against the might of Hong Kong with a 95-ball 119 against Pakistan’s increasingly mediocre attack. Suresh Raina took 68 balls to hit 101 against Hong Kong and kept his eye in with 84 off 69 balls yesterday.

We liked what we saw of Suresh Raina when England toured India a couple of years ago. He was 19 at the time and we thought him organised, composed and dynamic as well as loads of other adjectives which we haven’t really thought about, but which make it sound like we know what we’re talking about.

  1. Chump as in hahahaha or chump as in clot?

  2. Raina was pretty impressive yesterday; some of the cover drives early on were real pearls. I think he’ll regret that silly, soft dismissal at the end.

  3. Looks like a sub-continential Rob Key, but without the roly-poly. A dissentry issue, one would assume.

  4. NO DOUBT THAT RAINA PERFORMED WELL YESTERDAY ALTHOUGH HE COULD HVE SCORED A LITTLE MORE. BUT HE WN’T STOP ANYMORE N IS GOIN 2 DEFINITELY HIT THE BIG 1 IN THE UPCOMING MATCHES.
    N ALSO HE’S THE MOST CUTIEST CRICKETER I HVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. I WOULD WISH ALL THE INDIAN CRICKET TEAM 2 DO THEIR BEST N ESPECIALLY SURESH RAINA.
    I JUST LUV HIM!
