Cricket: Suresh Raina was in the news after he announced retirement from International cricket after M.S. Dhoni. The cricketer’s hometown is in Uttar Pradesh but his roots are back in Kashmir as he is a Kashmiri Pandit whose ancestors might have migrated to U.P. at some point.
Since the abrogation of article 370, a new movement that started in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir is #nayakashmir under which kashmiri’s will be getting everything they were earlier deprived off.
In an exclusive telephonic interview with the former player, he stated that he was really happy to know about the developments in kashmir in the recent years and now as the situation improves, it will be a good idea to provide the youth with the opportunity to train better.
Suresh Raina might be starting a cricket academy in kashmir and if he does so, he will be the first one. In the recent years, the situation of cricket has been worse due to misleading of youth by the political leaders.
This is a great move by Raina which will definitely be appreciated all over the valley.
