Selectors should have taken more responsibility towards senior players: Suresh Raina
India batsman Suresh Raina feels selectors should have taken more responsibility towards the senior players. Suresh Raina said he was never informed why he was dropped despite passing Yo Yo Test and performing well in the chances he got.
"I think selectors should have taken more responsibility towards the senior players. No matter how big a player you are at the end of the day you always play for the team, you perform, you go home and if you don't get to play the next morning, then you have to know the reason why I am not getting batting on the net. Tell me if I have any deficiency then I will work hard. Someone will have to tell where to work hard. If he does not know, then there will be a doubt in his mind somewhere. When the cause is not known, how he will improve," told Raina
Suresh Raina had knee surgery in August 2019 and is making good progress day-by-day. Raina hasn't played for India since July 2018, but the CSK batsman has not given up on his national ambitions.
"When you play Ranji Trophy no one comes there to watch the match. Then you wait for IPL because you get the chance to face world-class bowlers. And if you are getting paid by the IPL franchise, then you have to perform in every game. The pressure is very high in IPL. The T20 game is not easy is tough. There is not even time to think. If you get hurt during IPL, you don't get recovery time.
Raina said that he has learned from this experience and if he becomes a selector in the future, he will definitely inform the player the reason for him being dropped.
