87 vs Kings XI Punjab, IPL 2014 

It was not an international match, but not mentioning this inning would be unfair because this is the greatest knock of Raina’s career. In IPL 2014, Punjab established a huge score of 227 against Chennai. 

In the second inning, Chennai lost Faf Duplessis on the very first ball. And then Raina walked into the show and scored 87 runs in only 25 balls. Can you believe it? 

He smashed 12 fours and 6 maximums in this inning. But out of bad luck, he was run out and Chennai lost the match.

106 vs Sri Lanka, Tri-Nation Tournament in Bangladesh, 2010

The final of the Tri-nation tournament 2010 is another memorable match for Raina’s fans. In this match, almost every Indian star batsman lost their wicket at a low score, and India was at 47 on the loss of 4 wickets when Raina arrived. 

This was the first match Raina played with Jadeja, and he built an immense partnership with him. Both of them took India to the defendable score of 245. It includes Raina’s 106 runs on 115 balls and Jadeja’s 38 runs on 64 balls. 

However, India lost that match due to the excellent performance of Kumar Sangakara, Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan.
