The stats don't lie: They show that Raina is one of the best T20 batsmen in the game's short history. His fielding alone is enough to endear him to fans but his ability to hit sixes at number 5 makes him a key member of Team India. Though his IPL team Chennai Super Kings couldn't win the tournament for the third consecutive time in 2012, he remains the highest run-scorer in the history of the league. His career average for the Indian T20 side is an impressive 33.60. His Test career has not taken off and given his rip-roaring style, perhaps it was never destined to.
