Here's what Suresh Raina has said following knee surgery

Indian cricketer Suresh Raina underwent a successful knee surgery a couple of days ago.

While it was his second surgery on the same knee, he made the bold decision as it was likely to keep him out of action for a few months.

He is expected to take around six weeks to be completely fit again.

Meanwhile, he released a statement on his future.

Raina had undergone a similar knee surgery in 2007

"The issue began way back. It was 2007 when I underwent my maiden knee surgery and later, I was back on the field, giving the game my 100%, all thanks to my trainers & doctors," added Raina.

Nagging discomfort

Raina also revealed that for the past two years, he was feeling a nagging discomfort on the same knee.

In order to take the load off his knee, his trainers helped him in muscle training to avoid any undue impact on his gameplay.

"I thank my doctors, family, friends, and everyone who has wished me good health & speedy recovery," Raina further stated.

As of now, it is unclear when would Raina be back on the field.

While his estimated return date sounds to be after two months, it remains to be seen how he performs in the domestic circuit.

Raina, known to be a fighting cricketer, surely has the talent to bounce back in style.

However, as far as his international return goes, it looks unlikely.
