Former India international Suresh Raina turns 34 today. Raina won the 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy during his international career that spanned over a decade.

Raina announced his retirement from international cricket in August this year, the same day when former India captain MS Dhoni brought down curtains on his India career.

He is celebrating his birthday with his family in Maldives, sharing several pictures of him with his wife and daughter in a pool along with a lavish breakfast spread.

He played 226 ODIs, 78 T20Is and 18 Tests for India and scored nearly 8,00 runs across formats.

He was to play for Chennai Super Kings at the IPL 2020 in UAE but returned home in a controversial fashion before the season began.

Birthday wishes are pouring in from all around for the lefty.



Raina had earlier this week pledged to build sanitation and drinking water facilities at 34 government schools across Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and NCR.

“It brings me immense joy to celebrate my 34th birthday with this initiative. Every child deserves quality education, this includes their right to have access to safe and clean drinking water and toilet facilities in schools. I hope we can contribute to this with Gracia Raina Foundation collaborating with Yuva Unstoppable,” he had said.

Here’s wishing Raina a very happy birthday.
