Team India grew to No.1 spot in Test rankings under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. After a bit of ups and downs, India have established themselves as a dominating side in the longest format of the game. In the inaugural edition of World Test Championship, India have maintained their top position after a win over the West Indies and Bangladesh, before losing to New Zealand in the away tour earlier this year.

India has maintained their top rankings in Test cricket for 42 months now. It has been possible due to formidable unit which has performed to the fore, especially in the home conditions. The national team still needs to find rhythm in overseas conditions with the New Zealand tour earlier this year a reality check for them.

While India have an established Test unit, backed up by many new names, there are some players who should retire from the sport with their comeback nearly impossible.

Suresh Raina made his last international appearance in 2018. He has been a mainstay for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL but still has not been able to perform consistently. His chances to make a comeback in the limited-overs format are less with a Test comeback nearly impossible due to his current form.

Raina has played 18 Tests for India and scored 768 runs at an average of 26.48. He has never been a regular in this format for the national team.
