Arguably the best fielder India has ever produced, Suresh Raina disclosed his best cricketing idol when he wished him on his birthday. Raina wished the South African legend Jonty Rhodes on his 48th birthday on Thursday.
The fittest man ever in the history of international cricket to grace the field is associated with Mumbai Indians, one of the franchises of the Indian Premier League. He is likely to join the Bangladesh national team as the fielding consultant.
Raina took to twitter to wish this legendary fielder posting a photo of him with the star himself saying, “Happy birthday @JontyRhodes8!!Your positive outlook has always inspired me. Thank you for being the best role model in the world.”
