Suresh Raina Quotes
My job is to perform, enjoy cricket and thank God for whatever he has given me.
I am not brand conscious. I wear what suits me.
Celebration is big for me. From my younger days, when I used to win mementos while playing basketball, I have always believed in sharing my success. It has to be there. It lifts the energy levels of the entire side if you are positive and vocal when a wicket falls.
As professional cricketers, we have to ensure that we are battle-ready all the time.
