PM Narendra Modi’ Letter to Suresh Raina
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has written an emotional letter to former Indian Cricketer Suresh Raina.
In the Letter to Suresh Raina, PM thanked him for his contribution to Indian cricket.
Dear Suresh Raina
On 15 August, you decided to make what would surely have been one of the toughest decisions of your life. 1 do not want to use the word retirement because you are way too young and energetic to retire. You are padding up for the next innings of your life, after extremely fruitful innings on the cricket field.
You have lived and breathed cricket. Your interest in the sport began early in life, in the by-lanes of Muradnagar and subsequently found feer in the playgrounds of Lucknow. Thar on, what an eventful journey it has been culminating in the most import boner of representing India Country you love deeply – in all three foons of gani.
Generations will remember you not only as a fine batsman but also as a very useful bowler who the captain could turn to when the situation demanded. Your fielding was exemplary and inspiring. Some of the best catches in recent international cricket have your distinctive imprint. It would take days to count just the number of runs you have saved by your alertness on the field.
As a batsman, you especially distinguished yourself across all mediums and particularly in the newest form of the game, the T-20 cricket. This is not an easy format. In tune with our times, it requires quick fixes in double-quick time. Again, your promptness and speed were assets for this form.
India can never forget your inspiring role during the 2011 World Cup, especially during the later matches I saw you live in action at the Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad. during the Quarter Final against Australia. Your anchoring innings had a big role to play in our team’s victory. I can confidently say that most fans will miss seeing your elegant cover drive, one which I was lucky to witness live that day.
Sportspersons are admired not only for their conduct on the field but also off the field. Your fighting spirit can motivate many youngsters. During your cricketing career, you sometimes faced setbacks including injuries but every time you overcome these challenges, thanks to your tenacity.
At the same time, Suresh Raina will always be synonymous with team spirit. You played not for personal glory but for the glory of your team and the glory of India. Your enthusiasm on the field was infectious, and we could all witness that you would be among the first and most animated players to celebrate the fall of the opposing team’s wicket.
Your care and compassion towards society are visible in your numerous community service efforts. You have passionately supported efforts towards women empowerment, Swachh Bharat, and helping the needy. I am glad you are attached to India’s cultural roots and proud of deepening youth connect with our glorious ethos as well as value systems.
I am confident you will have equally fruitful and successful innings in whatever you wish to pursue in the times to come. I do hope you will use this opportunity to spend even more quality time with Priyanka, Gracia, and Rio.
Thank you for doing whatever you can to make India a leader in sports and constantly inspiring young minds.
Wishing you the very best for your future endeavors.
