Now back in the Indian team after more than a year and preparing for the T20I and ODI series against England in England, Raina’s secrets were spilled by his mother on a TV talk show recently.
Suresh’s mother Parvesh Raina appeared on Zoom TV’s Thanks Mom show and spoke about the first time Raina got selected in the Indian team. She said, “He called me first. He didn’t even say that he was selected. He just asked me to keep the house clean. I was wondering why he said so as our house is always clean. Around 2:30, our house with was flooded with media persons and it was then that I came to know about his selection. He will always call me before any match. He says mom I need your blessings.”
