Suresh Raina, the ever smiling left hander, posted a wonderful news on his twitter handle that will fill everyone with joy. The dashing batsman shared a photo of himself along with his wife Priyanka. The photo is very special in itself as Priyanka can be seen with a baby bump in the photo.
Though the left-hander did not write anything about that but his smile was telling everything as the couple strode down the streets of Amsterdam, Netherlands. The couple is expecting their second child very soon and the happiness can be clearly seen on the faces of the couple clearly in the photo.
Suresh Raina has been out of the action since last year’s IPL as the left hander missed Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this year along with opting out of Uttar Pradesh’s squad for the ongoing Ranji Trophy. The Southpaw has been the back bone of Chennai Super Kings batting ever since his debut for the franchise.

During the ban that was imposed on CSK after corruption charges, Raina captained Gujarat Loins in the IPL for two seasons. Though Lions did not have great IPL seasons. Raina was blessed with a baby girl during his captaincy stint in 2016. And for first time the left hander missed any IPL match since his debut to be with his wife, on May 16 2016.
Raina did not have a fruitful IPL season last year as scored just 383 runs in 17 matches with an average of 23.93. Suresh Raina was also expecting a national call-up for the 2019 World Cup. He was also given some chances in 2017 and 2018 but despite some good performances, he was dropped as India kept playing musical chairs for the no.4 slot in the eleven. He has played his last match for India in 2018 against England.
However, Chennai Super Kings have retained Suresh Raina as vice-captain for the upcoming IPL and the 33-year old still have enough fire to come good against bowling line-up.
