New Delhi: Former India cricketer Suresh Raina has written a letter to the DGP of Jammu and Kashmir, Dilbag Singh, offering his support to promote cricket among the underprivileged kids in the Union Territory.
This comes after Suresh Raina announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15, ending his 15 years journey at the age of 33.
In his ‘Letter of Proposal’, Raina expressed his desire to share his 15-year experience of playing cricket at the international level to help children in the valley to make a career in cricket.
“I write this letter with much hope and expectation to start and promote cricket and thus provide an opportunity for the underprivileged children from the state of Jammu & Kashmir to shape their career in cricket,” the letter read.
Further, Suresh Raina said that cricket is not just a sport as it helps in developing professional ethics and discipline in one’s life. Raina said that this opportunity can be used to create a “promising tomorrow for India”.
