With smashing an elegant half century in the league match against Rajasthan Royals, Virat Kohli became the first player to achieve the milestone of scoring 6000 plus runs in the IPL tournament. While fans of the cricketer celebrating this feat of him, a tweet from Suresh Raina who could have achieved the feat way before Kohli if he played the 13th edition of IPL, has won the hearts of the cricket fans.
“This is HUGE, meet the first ever player to reach 6000 runs in IPL. It was a delight to watch, more power to you. Wishing you many more success in life!” read the tweet of the player who recently announced retirement from the International cricket. He also added a picture of the Indian captain in his tweet.

Fans who saw this tweet from the left hander got surprised and admired his selfless gesture. So far, Raina has scored 5448 runs in IPL and it is notable that he has missed an entire season due to personal loss. The cricketer who is known for consistently performing for CSK, could have easily reached the number before Kohli and fans of him got overwhelmed on seeing the tweet of Raina.
“You could have been the 1st player to achieve this feat if you wouldn’t have missed the last Season!!! we are so Proud of you Raina ❤ even though you missed the last season you are still 2nd highest run scorer. I know many of them are now in race but you know how to slay” said a fan whereas another one wrote “rare retired cricketer who is never jealous of modern day players”
