Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina has been criticized for saying he is a Brahmin during a commentary. Raina made the controversial remarks during the inaugural match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League. Raina was responding to a question from a fellow commentator on how he views South Indian culture.
The match was between Laika Kovai Kings and Salem Spartans. “I also think I am a Brahmin. He has been playing in Chennai since 2004. I love the culture and the fellowship here. He played with Aniruddha Srikanth, Subramaniam Badrinath and L Balaji. There are some good things to learn from them, ”said Raina.
Raina’s remarks have drawn strong criticism on social media.
Meanwhile, the match was abandoned due to rain. Batting first, Kovai Kings lost 5 wickets in 18 overs and scored 168 runs.
