Suresh Raina praises the man who pulled Ganguly out of the team, also credits him for teaching India to win

A book is coming out on the life of former India cricketer Suresh Raina. In this, he has disclosed many things. Suresh Raina has praised former India coach Greg Chappell in his book 'Believe: What Life and Cricket Taught Me'. He told that Chappell had made a very deep impact on the Indian team during his tenure. Raina believes that this Australian legend taught the Indian team to chase the target. Greg Chappell was the coach of Team India from 2005 to 2007. There was a lot of controversy during this. He also had a lot of controversy with the then Team India captain Sourav Ganguly. Later, Ganguly was also dropped from the team.

Suresh Raina, however, talked about Chappell's positive impact. This 34-year-old player believes that in the midst of the World Cup victory in 2011, Chappell was lying in Team India as soon as he was coach. It is written in Raina's book, 'I think Greg should get the credit for molding the generation of Indian players. The fruits of the beach he had sown were visible later when we won the 2011 World Cup. I think amidst all the controversies in his coaching career, he told the importance of winning and winning India.

Raina made his debut as Chappell's coach

Suresh Raina made his international debut in the year 2005 as coach of Greg Chappell. During this time stars like MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir also shone. In the 90s, the Indian team used to go chasing runs and sudden collapse of the batting was common. But after 2005 this story started changing. Under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid, India won 14 consecutive matches chasing runs. For this, Raina gave a lot of credit to Captain Dravid and Coach Chappell. They said,

He taught us to chase the target. At that time we were all playing well but I remember he used to insist on breaking the target in batting meetings. For this credit goes to both Greg and Rahul Bhai. The batting order was fixed. Yuvi, Dhoni and I used to play. By then we had learned to handle the pressure as well as chasing runs and winning. I learned a lot from Greg.

Suresh Raina retired in the year 2020 along with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Although he is currently playing for Chennai Super Kings in IPL.


Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

The country lost its legendary sprinter Milkha Singh on Friday. Milkha Singh's life is an inspiration for anyone. He has set many records in his life and has set benchmarks for the people. Whatever he got from him, he used to learn something or the other. His inspirational words have the power to add to the broken courage of anyone. Something similar happened to Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team. Sandhu has told that the words of Milkha Singh, popularly known as Flying Sikh, inspire him even today.

Gurpreet recalled the words of Milkha Singh and told that this great sprinter told him that "You don't have to stop." Sandhu said that his advice helped him to fight the challenges during his European tenure. Veteran Milkha Singh passed away on Friday in Chandigarh due to complications related to Kovid-19. Thousands of countrymen, including players, paid tribute to him.

no substitute for hard work

Recalling the day he received the award from Milkha Singh at a function in Chandigarh in 2015, Gurpreet said, “He (Milkha) told me, “There is no substitute for hard work. I used to vomit blood several times during practice but you don't have to stop. At that time, I was playing club football in Norway with FC Stabeck, where every day was a struggle to prove myself and make it to the starting team. It was a big challenge while abroad, there were days when it was difficult to maintain my enthusiasm.

He said, "However, I myself used to remember the advice of 'Flying Sikh'. He was a great motivator and inspired me to give my all every day. The words he spoke to me are with me even today and will continue to be a great source of inspiration. His words and blessings will be with me whenever I fight for my country on the football field.

keeps the legacy alive

Gurpreet became the first Indian footballer to play in Europe's top division in 2014, representing Norway's FC Stabeck. He remained with the team until 2017 and during this time became the first Indian player to play in the Europa League (European football's second level club competition) in 2016.

Remembering Milkha Singh, who missed out on a bronze medal by a hundredth of a second at the Rome Olympics (1960), Gurpreet said, "The saga of great people and their legacy lives on forever. Milkha Singh ji and his life story have influenced billions of people in India and across the world. He may not be with us but he will continue to inspire generations to come. We all have grown up reading about him and will never forget to share the stage with him. That moment will always be close to my heart.
