Second knee surgery was tough call to make: Raina

Vastavam web: India batsman Suresh Raina posted a heartfelt message on his social media handles after he underwent a knee surgery in Amsterdam and updated fans about his health. Raina on Friday underwent a knee surgery where he had been facing discomfort for the last few months. “I am out of surgery and healing steadily, for which I thank my doctors, family, friends, and everyone who has wished me good health and speedy recovery,” the left-handed batsman posted on Twitter and Instagram on Saturday.

“To be honest, a second knee surgery was a tough call to make because I knew it would put me off-action for a few months and I wasn’t ready for it until a few weeks ago when the pain had gotten a bit much and I knew there was only one way out of this. “I hope I’m up on my feet, on the field and ready to give my best very soon again,” he added. The left-handed batsman will not be available for most part of India’s upcoming domestic season which begins with Duleep Trophy.
