Suresh Raina has followed MS Dhoni in announcing his retirement from international cricket on Saturday.

“It was nothing but lovely playing with you, @mahi7781. With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you in this journey. Thank you India. Jai Hind,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

Both Dhoni and Raina were pictured reaching Chennai earlier this week for an IPL training camp, before the players leave for the 2020 IPL being held in the UAE. Both are expected to play the IPL.

Dhoni announced in an Instagram post on Saturday evening that he was retiring. Raina followed with a similar post less than an hour later.

Raina has 5615 runs from 226 ODIs and 1605 from 78 T20Is for India. He was the 12th Indian debutant to score a Test century on doubt but his Test career was outshone by his limited-overs career.
