Suresh Raina has played under MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli. When the former India player was asked to rank three, his number one choice was MS Dhoni. While Rahul Dravid came second, Virat came last on the list.
“I have played a lot with Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) the batsman, the player and the leader. Rahul (Dravid) bhai was my captain when I started out playing for India, when the core of the team was being built. So will go with Mahi bhai (1st), Rahul bhai (2nd) and Virat Kohli (3rd). I have had many good partnerships with Virat Kohli and he has created very impressive records. So yeah, that would be my order – Dhoni , Rahul and Cheeku (Virat),” said Raina while speaking to RJ Raunak on the latter’s YouTube channel.
Raina enjoyed the best time of his career under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. The duo will represent Chennai Super Kings in the remaining matches of the Indian Premier League 2021.
In conversation with RJ Raunak, Raina was asked to name a franchise he would play for in the IPL if he wasn’t part of the Chennai Super Kings, he took the name of Delhi Capitals. “Delhi hai! Ghar bhi pass hai, Muradnagar se pass hai, aur kaafi dost hai us team mein. So, I’d prefer Delhi,” he said.
