Suresh Raina, in another Instagram live session, once again talked about how the selectors have failed to communicate with senior Cricketers, saying that he was not given a reason behind his exclusion from the Indian team from back in 2018.
Raina’s knee injury from 2019 has not helped his case of a return to the national side either. He had to go through a surgery which derailed his return to the game and he had to stay away from the game for almost a year.
In a live session with Fancode, Raina said, “I feel somewhere communication should have happened, I’ve been saying that. Senior players have supported me, the selector isn’t in my hands. There have been many great selectors, Dilip Vengsarkar supported the players, Kiran More sir, there were many good selectors who used to communicate with players, be it a junior or senior.”
“A selector has a right to tell face to face, I would prefer that because I’ve learnt it from my father and MS Dhoni. You say it on my face, if there’s a problem, I will solve it,” he added.
Raina also pointed out that he doesn’t have a problem with any player but his main issue is when a selector isn’t professional enough. If a player sacrifices so much for his country, he has the right to get his questions answered, according to the Muradnagar born left handed batsman.
“Virat told me to improve my fitness, I did it, that’s why he made me play. Rohit always knew my talent. I don’t have any problem with any player, but as a selector, they should be more professional. I am not targeting anyone, I am just saying that sometimes you give so much to the country, you work so hard, stay away from the family, I personally think we should get answers to these questions,” said Raina.
