Message I’ve got is to play my natural game: Suresh Raina

Speaking to the media ahead of the series decider as the tour culminates where it all began – Cape Town, he started off explaining India’s aggressive approach in the first six overs, a key part of which was his promotion to number three. “Virat (Kohli) showed that faith in me. In the last two games, if you see in the first six overs we dominated their bowlers. In T20 cricket, it is really important to start well in the powerplay; we played well in the first two games and I hope we are going to do really well in the decider,” he said.”In the first six overs, you need to play your shots. Sometimes you get runs and sometimes you don’t. When you have a lot of batting depth in the middle-order, you need to take a chance and they can execute it later on.””If you see the Indian batting order, numbers one to three are all batting well. When it comes to four, five and six, MS (Dhoni) is there, Manish is also doing a good job. So you need to see where I can fit in. It’s not the format, every Indian game is very important for me right now.”
