Indian left-handed batsman Suresh Raina returned to the national side after one-year hiatus during India’s 28-run victory over South Africa in the first T20I of a 3 match series at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Sunday.
Raina, who is regarded as one of the finest players of the shortest format, was drafted in the playing XI by Indian skipper Virat Kohli and the southpaw announced his arrival with a trademark six.
In the third over of the Indian innings, Dane Paterson provided Raina with a full length delivery, outside the leg stump; the left-hander moved towards his right and pulled it for a maximum, over the deep mid-wicket region.
Raina backed his shot with brute force which took the ball miles and miles away, leaving Kohli and others shell-shocked.
