A letter of appreciation was sent to Raina by the PM’s office to laud their achievements in the game of cricket. Their contribution to the success of Indian cricket was immense and it was duly recognised by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Generations will remember you not only as a fine batsman but also as a very useful bowler who the captain could turn to when the situation demanded. Your fielding was exemplary and inspiring. Some of the best catches in recent international cricket have your distinctive imprint. It would take days to count just the number of runs you have saved by your alertness on the field,” the letter of appreciation read. PM Modi further said “Raina will always be synonymous with the team spirit” and wished him for his post-retirement innings.
