Suresh Raina may have been a little inconsistent with the bat of late but his singing appears to be spot on. 

Left-handed Raina, who recently returned to India's T20I squad, is presently in Sri Lanka with the team for the Nidahas T20I tri-series. 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video on Twitter on Sunday ahead of India's third game in the tri-series. Raina could be seen here singing Bollywood hit "yeh shaam mastani madhosh kiye jaye" to an appreciative crowd in a hotel in Colombo. The song is originally sung by the great Kishore Kumar and Raina appears to be doing plenty of justice to it. 

 

 

Raina scored 1 and 28 in the previous two matches against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. In the preceding three-game T20I series against South Africa that saw him play his first international game in a year, he had got scores of 15, 31 and 43. 

The 30-year-old got good starts in most of these games but he will like to score big as competition for places in the Indian team is presently at an all-time high. 

India will play Sri Lanka again on Monday and Raina and his fans would hope his batting turns out to be as mellifluous as his singing.
