Suresh Raina is well known for his fielding skills and the 31-year-old stunned everyone on Tuesday with his stellar effort in the match between Uttar Pradesh and Odisha. Raina, who is playing for Uttar Pradesh in the ongoing competition, pulled off a sharp one-handed catch at first slip to dismiss Sujit Lenka in the 67th over of the match.
