The Indian cricketers are back to their den after a successful tour of South Africa and senior player Suresh Raina is already back on the ground working on his fitness. He is definitely not getting any younger and knows that he needs to be at the top of not just his game, but also his fitness to keep his position in the national squad and that seems to be his sole lookout at present.
Taking to Twitter, Raina posted a video which read: “Hill running at Nehru Park. CardioPumpculars!! helps in strengthening your foundation. #Fitness #Training #StayingFit ##”

The Indian cricket team after securing the T20I series against South Africa in Cape Town, won a million hearts as they donated R1,00,000 to the Cape Town Water Crisis Fund. In fact, the South African team also made donations for the noble cause. The cheque was given to Gift of Givers at the last T20I on Sunday. The donated money will be used to drill borewells as well as to supply bottled water to organizations in need.

Indian captain Virat Kohli stressed on the need to get involved with this campaign. He said, “Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and whenever we visit and play at Newlands, we are treated extremely well by the local people. By creating awareness of the drought, we are playing our part in highlighting the drought so people can see the seriousness of what’s taking place in the Mother City.”
Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan were the star performers with the bat but it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar who again held his nerve in the end as India sealed the T20I series with a sensational 2-1 win over South Africa in Cape Town.
Southpaw Raina scored a quickfire 43 off just 27 balls, Pandya(21) and Karthik (13) chipped in with the runs towards the end as India finished their innings at 172/7. South Africa bowled well in patches with Junior Dala again impressive with his raw pace, as he picked up 3/35 in his 4 overs.
