Indian cricketer Suresh Raina's SUV suffers tyre burst

Indian cricketer Suresh Raina's SUV suffers tyre burst”

Unfortunately, the auto had no spare tyre and Raina was stranded until another vehicle was arranged by the Police.

Raina was travelling from Ghaziabad to Kanpur to participate in the Duleep Trophy - a domestic tournament for which he is to captain India Blue. The Indian batsman survived an accident scare after the tyre of his Range Rover burst near Etawah on Tuesday.

India all-rounder Suresh Raina is gearing up for Duleep Trophy match after escaping unhurt following a tyre burst to his SUV in the wee hours of today (September 12). Following the incident, the locals helped Raina contact the police. It was learnt that if the vehicle would have travelled at high speed, it would have created major problems for the Uttar Pradesh batsman. This was established by DSP Rajesh Kumar Singh who also confirmed that Raina was behind the wheels at the time of the incident.

There was no injury to him, the police said.

Suresh Raina is leading India Blue in Duleep Trophy. The southpaw got at least two four-day games to make an impact.

He last donned the Indian colours in January this year, playing for the T20I team during the England's tour of India.

It has been learnt that for the current Indian team, the acceptable "Yo-Yo" score is 19.5 and upwards.

Now out of favour with the Indian team, Raina, who has been playing multiple tournaments to get back to prime form and fitness, was last seen in the Buchi Babu invitational meet in Chennai.

However, Raina had scored well below the permissible level of 19.5 which is the biggest reason for his ouster.
