Suresh Raina – I can be India’s No. 4

Raina, who last played for India against England in 2018, is eyeing a comeback to the national side with two T20 World Cups in successive years, 2020 and 2021.

The No.4 batting spot has been a hot topic of conversation for Team India in the last two years. While they tried Ambati Rayudu for some time, right before the World Cup in England, Vijay Shankar was handed the accountability to play at the spot. But, once Shankar got injured during the course of the match, Rishabh Pant was appointed as the batter to play at the No.4 slot.

Southpaw said that “He appears confused, is not playing his natural game. He is looking for singles, blocking, and appears lost.” And he added “Someone needs to talk to him as M.S. Dhoni would do to players. Cricket is a mental game and Pant has to be backed to play his attacking brand of cricket. Right now he seems to be playing under instructions and it is not working.”

Basically my left knee was cleaned up. I expect to be back playing in November,” Raina told Sportstar. “I can be the No. 4 for India. I have batted in that slot before and delivered. I am looking forward to an opportunity with two T20 World Cups coming up.”

The current No. 4 is Rishabh Pant and he got the backing of Raina, who called on the youngster to play his brand of cricket.
