Indian wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni supported Suresh Raina in every difficult time and Raina also never disappointed him.
Recently, former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh had given a statement that when Dhoni was the captain, Suresh Raina was his favorite player at that time. Now Raina said in response to Yuvraj that Mahi Bhai always supported me, because he knew that I am talented. He supported me and I did well for Team India and Chennai Super Kings.
Raina said that the best thing about Dhoni was that after two matches he would say that if you do not score, then you have to take a big step. Then I used to ask him for a chance in one or two matches. Talking to Fancode, Raina said that Dhoni used to caution him during the useless form and he also assured that he would not repeat the mistakes.
Challenges in middle order
Raina said that the batsmen have to face a lot of challenges in the middle order. Every match has different challenges. Batting in the middle order is not easy. Sometimes you have to bat 10 to 15 overs and sometimes 30 overs. Every time a different situation has to be faced. I took the challenge of the middle order positively. Raina said that I am thankful to Dhoni, because he always supported me. He always knew what kind of talent I had. He was our greatest captain after Sourav Ganguly. Dhoni collaborated in 2011 and that is why I became a part of the World Cup winning team.
