Suresh Raina Took A Dig At Shahid Afridi, and Said- ‘I Am Raina, Not Afridi’. Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina took a playful jab at Pakistani legend Shahid Afridi.

What Happened?

While KKR was batting, the camera showed a packed stadium in Ahmedabad. Akash Chopra, the commentator, asked Raina if he had ever played there.

Raina chuckled and replied, “No Akash bhai [brother], I’m Suresh Raina, not Shahid Afridi.”

Why Did Raina Say That?

As you might know, Shahid Afridi is famous for taking retirement and then making comebacks.

In 2006, he retired from Test cricket but changed his mind two weeks later! He did the same thing with ODIs, announcing retirement and then returning multiple times.

That’s probably why Raina jokingly distanced himself from Afridi with his reply.
