Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina, on Thursday, July 14, was present at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, watching the second ODI between India and England. During the first innings where the Three Lions batted, Raina, who retired from international cricket in August 2020, caught up with MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh and Ravi Shastri.
Soon after, Raina, who played alongside Harbhajan and Dhoni for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), uploaded pictures along with the former cricketing greats.
The left-handed Raina captioned the pictures and wrote, “Great watching the boys in blue @harbhajan_singh @msdhoni”

Back in July 2018, Raina played his second-last ODI of his career at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. Raina scored 46 runs in that game, but the Men in Blue lost to Eoin Morgan’s men by 86 runs.
On the same tour, Raina played his last ODI at Headingley in Leeds, after which he never played in the 50-over format. It also happened to be Raina’s last match for India in any format.
As far as the ongoing game is concerned, England scored 246 runs after being put in to bat first. The Three Lions lost half their side with the score at 102, but Moeen Ali and David Willey scored in the 40s to take their team to a respectable score.
Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone scored 38 and 33, but they failed to carry on. Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers for India as he picked up four wickets for 47 runs at the Home of Cricket.
Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya picked up two wickets apiece for the Men in Blue at Lord’s.
