Suresh Raina on Thursday (July 30) completed his 15 years in international cricket as his wife Priyanka took to social media to post an emotional post on this special occasion.

Priyanka took to Instagram and curated a long post for her hubby and wrote: “Fifteen years since you played your first ODI! 15 years of success, ups & downs, hard work & a lot more. World has seen your passion, dedication & the rewards you got in return. I have seen your hardships, madness, sleepless nights & your reluctance to settle down with any non sense thrown at you.”

“I have seen the amount of hard work you have put in & how true you have always been to yourself when it came to giving back to your game, people who supported you & everyone who wished best for you during this journey. You always acknowledged how blessed you are to receive the love & faith people have shown in you. And you worked tirelessly to stand upto their expectations & deliver your best,” she added.

“You are a gem person with a golden heart who is always willing to give wholeheartedly. Stay the way you are! keep shining, keep growing & keep giving your best unconditionally & rest will follow!”

Fifteen years since you played your first ODI! 15 years of success, ups & downs, hard work & a lot more. World has seen your passion, dedication & the rewards you got in return. I have seen your hardships, madness, sleepless nights & your reluctance to settle down with any non sense thrown at you. I have seen the amount of hard work you have put in & how true you have always been to yourself when it came to giving back to your game, people who supported you & everyone who wished best for you during this journey. You always acknowledged how blessed you are to receive the love & faith people have shown in you. And you worked tirelessly to stand upto their expectations & deliver your best. We all know It’s a world where you can’t be perfect all the time, yet there was no tolerance or constructive approach shown towards even the smallest lacking you may have shown, despite all your contribution, records & achievements! what I truly appreciate is your resilience & the ease with which you always kept your cool to deal with any criticism or unfair treatment. I have always been proud of you & will always be. You achieved incredible heights but you deserved much more & you still do. You are a gem person with a golden heart who is always willing to give wholeheartedly. Stay the way you are! keep shining, keep growing & keep giving your best unconditionally & rest will follow! We love you @sureshraina3 & are super proud of everything you have done. Love, Rio, Gracia & Priyanka #15yearsofraina

The aggressive left-handed middle-order batsman and an occasional off-spin bowler is also regarded as one of the best fielders in world cricket. 

The Uttar Pradesh born cricketer had made his ODI debut in July 2005 against Sri Lanka at the age of 19. 

As for his Test debut, it came about five years later, in July 2010, against the same opposition. He scored a hundred on his Test debut and was also an integral part of the Indian squad that won the 2011 World Cup.

When it comes to the Indian Premier League (IPL), he was the captain of Gujarat Lions (GL) and is the vice-captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

On Thursday, the man celebrates 15 years since his debut in international cricket. Raina also took to social media to share his happiness and wrote, “Thank you so much guys, really overwhelmed with your love & support…These 15 years have been the greatest moments, and you guys as my family members keep me motivated. Love & Peace.”
