Speaking on his absence from the Indian national side he said, "I am working hard and there is nothing tough in life, if you enjoy your process and enjoy your cricket and I have always done that". He's my idol. My life will be a success if I could achieve 50 per cent of what he has achieved. "So, it (being out of Indian team) is nothing and I am enjoying it and the things will come in my time", he stated.

Kuldeep Yadav has been a revelation for the Indian team ever since he made his worldwide debut in March this year. He, alongside Yuvraj Singh, was not picked to play for Virat Kohli-led India after reportedly failing the Yo-Yo test.

Mumbai: Away from the scene of action in global cricket in recent times, Suresh Raina attributed his Uttar Pradesh teammate and chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav's success to the work done by former India head coach Anil Kumble.

"Kuldeep (Yadav) is doing very well and the credit goes to Anil Bhai (Anil Kumble)". He worked really hard with him and he has done so much for him. I was talking to Kuldeep in the IPL. When I was speaking to him during the IPL and the first-class season, he always used to message Anil bhai. "He is the product of Anil Kumble", Raina said on the sidelines of Sketchers Performance Goa River Marathon launch.

Although he has not played for India since February, Raina said he was under no pressure and has not set any personal targets.

"He (Kuldeep) has done well with Brad Hogg as well".

"I think he's the guy who'll change everything in the bowling department".

Out of the Indian side, Raina is now in charge of Uttar Pradesh in Ranji Trophy. The UP side was humiliated by Railways after being bundled out for 72 runs while chasing 94. "The boys are still learning". We have still five more games to go and after that match we had a chat. The wicket was little different.

"In Duleep Trophy you have seen the wicket and it is not in my hand to win the toss". So, we had to bat on the fourth day, which is not easy. "Nonetheless, there are a couple of aspects that we need to take in a positive manner", he explained. "It's good to see the team doing well. If I'm enjoying, I can win games for my country any day", he said, philosophically.
