    Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written a letter to former Indian Cricketer Suresh Raina hailing his contribution towards Indian Cricket. Suresh Raina announced his retirement from international cricket on 15th of August.

    In the letter, the Prime Minister has said that generations will remember Raina not only as a fine batsman, but also as a very useful bowler who the captain could turn to when the situation demanded. He said, his fielding was exemplary and inspiring and some of the best catches in recent international cricket have his distinctive imprint.

    Mr Modi said, it would take days to count just the number of runs Raina has saved with his ness on the field. He said, as a batsman Raina especially distinguished himself across all mediums and particularly in the newest form of the game – the T-20 cricket. He said, this is not an easy format and in tune with our times, it requires quick fixes in double quick time. Mr Modi said, again his promptness and speed were assets for this form.

    In the letter, the Prime Minister also said that India can never forget Raina’s inspiring role during the 2011 World Cup especially during the later matches. Mr Modi said, he saw Raina live in action at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad, during the Quarter Final against Australia.

    He said, his anchoring innings had a big role to play in our team’s victory. Mr Modi said, he can confidently say that most fans will miss his elegant cover drives, one which he was lucky to witness that day.

    Mr Modi also wrote that sportspersons are admired not only for their conduct on the field but also off the field. Mr Modi said, his fighting spirit can motivate many youngsters. He said, Raina’s care and compassion towards society is visible in his numerous community service efforts.
