Indian batsman Suresh Raina and his wife Priyanka have become parents for the second time. The couple was blessed with a baby boy on March 23 (Monday). They already have an adorable daughter Gracia Raina who was born on 16 May 2016. Gracia is quite popular on the internet owing to her cute videos posted by Raina and his wife on Instagram.
As soon as the news broke out on social media, the internet was flooded with blessings and best wishes for the newborn. The news of Raina becoming a father for the second time was shared by his IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings on Twitter.
The official twitter handle of CSK tweeted today, “Kutti Thala is here! Lots of #Yellove and #WhistlePodu to @_PriyankaCRaina and @ImRaina for the newest addition to the #superfamily,”
Boria Majumdar, the cricket historian also congratulated the couple through his official twitter handle. He also assured the fans that the mother and baby both are safe and healthy.
Raina has many times expressed his wish to be a part of the Indian squad again. The aggressive middle-order batsman last played for India in 2018 during India tour of England. He played the innings of 1 and 46 runs at number 4 for India. However, the selectors dropped him from the team.
Suresh Raina believes that he is the perfect number 4 batsman for the Indian cricket team. He wants to play for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup this year in Australia. The batsman was planning to showcase his talent to the selectors in IPL 2020. But BCCI has suspended the tournament till April 15 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Owing to the current scenario, the chances of him playing for India are almost nil. Also, Shreyas Iyer is playing very well at number 4 for India followed by KL Rahul at number 5.
