If you look at Suresh's record, now and compare it with Sachin Tendulkar's record at the same stage of his one-day international career, you'll find it's exactly the same.I definitely wished he was right, as any Indian fan would, as I want Raina for the future. Till date, Raina has played 36 ODIs/28 innings and aggregates 612 runs at an average of 26.60 with 3 fifties and a highest score of 81*. Similar numbers for the Tendulkar were hugely different - 36 ODIs/34 innings and 1075 runs at an average of 35.83 with 10 fifties and a top score of 81. The similarity ends at 81. I went in further - after 28 innings - Tendulkar had 821 runs at 32.84 and 7 fifties with a highest of just 77.
