Suresh Raina, who was passed over by the franchise at the mega-auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year, will compete in various T20 competitions all over the world. The southpaw has made the decision to leave the IPL and will play in T20 tournaments in South Africa, Sri Lanka, and the United Arab Emirates.

The upcoming domestic season will not see Raina on the field for Uttar Pradesh. He announced it on Twitter on Tuesday by writing, “It has been an incredible honor to stand out for my nation and state of UP. I would like to declare that I am leaving all forms of cricket.”

Earlier, Raina was cited as saying by news source Dainik Jagran, “For the next two or three years, I intend to keep playing cricket. The cricket teams in Uttar Pradesh are producing some intriguing young players. My No Objection Certificate (NOC) has already been obtained from the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA). My choice has been communicated to vice-president Rajiv Shukla and BCCI secretary Jay Shah.”

On August 15, 2020, Raina announced his retirement from international cricket less than an hour after MS Dhoni did the same.
