Veteran Indian cricketer, Suresh Raina was awestruck when he saw Shahid Kapoor, the Bollywood actor, execute a perfect cover drive while training for his upcoming cricket-based movie, Jersey. Suresh Raina is presently in India as the veteran returned to the country from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) leaving the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) squad before IPL 2020 began.

CSK have had a lot of batting collapses in this year’s IPL and this just goes on to show how imporatant a player Raina has been for them.
