2015 WC INDvPAK: Suresh Raina told- was eating, when Dhoni came and said- Get ready for batting

A total of seven World Cup matches have been played between India and Pakistan, of which India have won all the matches so far. In the 2015 World Cup, the teams of India and Pakistan were face to face in the group stage. The match was played in Adelaide, with Virat Kohli scoring 107 runs. India won the match by 76 runs and in the course of Virat’s century innings, people ignored Suresh Raina’s innings slightly. Raina batted at number four in that match, scoring an innings of 74 runs. Raina spoke about the then captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s decision to be sent up in the batting order.

Raina said that half the credit of the run scored in that innings goes to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Raina told that Dhoni had decided that he would go for batting at number-4. At that time Ajinkya Rahane used to bat at number-4 in One Day International for Team India. Raina used to bat at No. 5. Raina told in a YouTube interview, ‘I have never questioned his decisions. We were playing matches against Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup, I was sitting and eating sandwiches, then after 20 overs Dhoni came and said to get ready by wearing a pad. Dressed up for batting wearing an I pad. Virat was batting tremendously, Dhawan was runout and I went to play at number four. I would have scored 70-80. ‘

When Raina came out to bat, India’s score was 162 runs in 29.5 overs for three wickets. Raina smashed a blistering 74 off 56 balls, which included five fours and three sixes. He shared a 110-run partnership with Virat. Raina explained what Dhoni’s strategy was behind this. He told, ‘I went to him after the match and I asked him why I had to send me immediately up the batting order? He said that you play well against the leg spinner and at that time only the leg spinner was bowling. Dhoni also praised my batting.

Dhoni’s strategy also proved effective in that match against Pakistan. Pakistan’s then star leg-spinner Yasir Shah did not get a single wicket in his account. Raina beat Yasir fiercely. Yasir had spent 60 runs in 8 overs in that match. India had scored 300 runs for seven wickets, in response Pakistan’s team was reduced to 224 runs.
