Suresh Raina is making a comeback in Indian team after being left out for a long time. Raina is a part of India's T20I squad against South Africa. The left-hander will be looking to make an impact to get a long-run. This will be a key opportunity for Raina to seal his place in the India side.
India is struggling to find an appropriate middle order batsman in the limited-overs format. Raina will be eyeing that spot for sure.
The veteran cricketer shared a post letting his fans know that he is on his way to South Africa. While fans wished success for him, Mohammad Amir, Pakistan fast bowler wished him good luck too.

Amir wrote, "Good luck bro do well." India and Pakistan have not played cricket together in a bilateral series for a long time. Pakistan had toured India in 2012 last time. Since then, BCCI has refused to play with Pakistan after political tension between the neighbor countries.
