Disappointed that I am not a part of the Champions Trophy squad, says Raina

INDIA BATSMAN Suresh Raina has expressed his disappointment after failing to make it into the national squad for the upcoming Champions Trophy in England. 

Raina divulged that he was expecting a comeback call as he had been performing well in the ongoing IPL 10. As reported by HT, the southpaw stated that he will let his bat do the further talking and reckoned that he is confident about making a comeback one day.

“What can I say now? It’s really disappointing and hurting. I was expecting a comeback call this time. I have been performing well and consistently, proving myself in the ongoing IPL season. Certainly it is not on the expected lines but I would let my bat do the talking as I am sure of my comeback in the Indian squad one day.” 

The Gujarat Lions skipper has scored 434 runs in 12 games this season and although his side has lost all the chances of breaking into the top four, he wants to focus on the remaining two games and give his best. 

“Right now I am focusing on my remaining matches in the IPL and would try to score as much as I can for the team’s victory. Wins in the remaining matches will lift the spirit of the team though we have already missed the cut for the play-offs.”
