Social media and the internet have made people’s lives pretty much easy. Not only do they help the mass to remain connected but also make sure that the people remain well-updated on the happenings around the globe. But then again, every coin has two sides and the internet is not an exception either. While it is definitely a boon, sometimes it can be a bane and Indian batsman Suresh Raina would certainly agree to it after reports of his death spread like wildfire.
But on Monday, a furious Raina rubbished and slammed the fake news, which stated that he was dead after a road accident. Posts and videos of the fake news have been all over the social media, mentioning that the Uttar Pradesh star recently passed away following a road accident.
Raina took to Twitter and assured his millions of followers that he was all right before slamming the reports. He revealed that the reports have left his family and friends disturbed before confirming that the Youtube channels showing the news have been reported.
“Past few days there has been fake news of me being hurt in a car accident. The hoax has my family & friends deeply disturbed. Please ignore any such news; with god’s grace I’m doing absolutely fine. Those @YouTube channels have been reported & hope strict actions will be taken soon,” he tweeted.

Raina’s international career at standstill:
Raina’s international career, meanwhile, has hit a roadblock. The southpaw was an integral part of India’s limited-overs teams not very long ago but things have changed in the last one year or so. He made his much-anticipated return to the national team during the T20I series in South Africa last year but failed to deliver after a promising start.
He had won the ‘Man Of the Match’ award in the final game of the series against the Proteas and had enjoyed some good outings in the victorious Nidahas Trophy campaign too. In the T20 series against Ireland, he scored 69 in the second game in Dublin before failing miserably in England. Raina was the part of all the three ODIs against England but failed to grab the chance. He was dropped after the series and has not received a call yet.
