New Delhi: Veteran Indian cricketer Suresh Raina suffered a huge blow recently after he was left out of India's 15-man squad for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy. Raina, who is leading Gujarat Lions in the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), has been named as one of the five stand-by players for the tournament.
One of the most successful players in IPL, Raina has not had the best of season this year. As a result of all that has been happening with Raina on and off the field, his fan base is likely to have reduced down.
But in a moment of huge delight for Raina's supporters, one of his fans breached through the security at the Green Park stadium in Kanpur and rushed to his favourite cricketer.
Even before the security officials could get into action, the fan was seen sitting on his knees in front of Raina seeking an autograph.
