Indian cricketer Suresh Raina underwent knee surgery in Amsterdam which effectively rules him out of the better part of India’s domestic season which starts later this month. The left-hander had a niggling knee problem since last season and will require at least six weeks of intense rehabilitation for recovery.
“Mr Suresh Raina went through a surgery for his knee where he is been facing discomfort for last few months. The surgery is been successful and it will require him 4-6 weeks of rehab for recovery,” Raina’s Dutch surgeon Dr H Van der Hoeven was quoted as saying.
Taking to Twitter, former South African player Jonty Rhodes posted a heartfelt message for Raina.
Rhodes wrote: “@ImRaina u have been an inspiration to so many with your incredible work ethic over your career, especially these last couple of years. Listen to your body now my friend - knowing u, u will want to be out training tomorrow #aramse”
