The 33-year-old, who is also Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings teammate, posted a picture of him with the experienced wicketkeeper-batsman and other CSK players and confirmed that he is joining Dhoni in his journey.
“It was nothing but lovely playing with you, @mahi7781 . With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you in this journey. Thank you India. Jai Hind!,” Raina tweeted.

Sharing a video of his cricket journey, the former Indian skipper thanked everyone for their love and support throughout his cricket career.

Raina’s Test debut came much later in July 2010. He played his first match for India in the longest format of the game against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
