Suresh Raina has been out of the game for a longer time, not being visible since the end of the IPL. Mahendra Sigh Dhoni also eye for a comeback in the limited over game after Sri Lanka tour as he has retired from the test cricket long back. Raina would be hoping for a comeback.
Raina posted a picture on his Twitter, which shows him enjoying a training session with a fit Dhoni. “A well spent day at #NCA! Always so much to learn from @msdhoni and be inspired #NCA #Bangalore #inspiring #motivating,” he tweeted.

They were seen at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, where they were going through their fitness regime. Not to mention Indian officials have announced to look into fitness as the main prospect to choose a team even ahead of this!
India will play five ODI matches against Sri Lanka after the test match followed by a lone T20I match. After this, India will be hosting matches against Australia in September. They will play five ODIs and three T20Is from the middle of September till into October. After that, they will take on visiting Kiwis.
Dhoni has been out of action since the West Indies series in July, while Raina last played a T20I in February against England. Both these duos can definitely be lethal for India if and only if they pass the fitness test.
