Suresh Raina has revealed that he was aware of that MS Dhoni would announce his retirement upon landing in Chennai. Raina, Dhoni Piyush Chawla, Deepak & Karn Sharma landed in Chennai on August 14, and a day later on August 15, the former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his retirement. After few minutes of Dhoni's announcement, Suresh Raina also gave a shocking news of announcing his retirement from the International cricket.

"I knew Dhoni would announce his retirement upon reaching Chennai, So I was ready. I, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar and Karn Sharma reached Ranchi on 14 August with the chartered plane, and picked up Mahi bhai and Monu Singh," Raina told Dainik Jagran.

"After announcing our retirement, we hugged and cried a lot. I, Piyush, Ambati Rayudu, Kedhar Jadhav and Karn sat together after that, talked about out careers and our relationship. We partied during the night," said Suresh Raina.

Raina made his retirement official when he conveyed the same on his social media on Sunday and later the BCCI. Raina said that his retirement plan was not instinct, it was pre-planned.

"We had already made up our minds to retire on Saturday (August 15). Dhoni' jersey number is 7 and mine is 3 - put it together and it makes 73. And on August 15, India completed 73 years of Independence, so there couldn't have been a better day," Raina said.

"Dhoni began his career on 23 December (2004) against Bangladesh in Chittagong, while I made my debut on 30 July (2005) against Sri Lanka. Both of us almost began together in International cricket, remained together at CSK, and so we now retired together and will continue to play in IPL together," Raina added.

MS Dhoni & Suresh Raina can be seen in action from September 19 in the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is set to be held in UAE.
