Gill remarks came after Raina on Tuesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.
Gill shared a post on homegrown social media, Koo App , said Raina’s contribution towards cricket is invaluable and wished the southpaw good luck for the “second innings”.
“Your contribution to the game of cricket is invaluable. Good luck on your second innings @ImRaina bhai, ” Gill said on the Koo app.

The stylish batter had made his international debut against Sri Lanka in 2005.
He featured in 226 ODIs, scoring 5615 runs.
Raina will now play for Indian Legends in the second season of the Road Safety World Series
