Mayanti Langer, a Star Sports presenter, started a banter by tweeting a screenshot of the available Wi-Fi networks near her. Surprisingly, one of the Wi-Fi networks was ‘SureshRaina’. Though the name of left-hand batsman was not the only surprising name on the list. There was also a Wi-Fi network named ‘Third Umpire’ which left Twitterati amused. Mayanti tweeted the screenshot after India won the third and final ODI of the series against New Zealand at Kanpur by 6 runs in a nail-biting contest.
Here’s the tweet that Langer posted after the third ODI –

Twitterati had a hilarious reaction to Mayanti’s tweets. They advised her to ask the third umpire –
Ha ha. Get it for the 3rd Umpire. 🙂

Few suggested her to try entering Raina’s daughter’s and wife’s name –

Someone referred to an advertisement Raina had done –
Jio Dhan dhana dhan

Some of them tried to take a dig at Raina’s weak form and the Yo-Yo fitness test he allegedly failed –
It’s “No short balls please!”

Raina has been out of the side for a while now. The southpaw took a few fitness tests in National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore but has not been able to make a comeback. The 30-year-old has not played a single T20I after the third T20I against England held on February 1. He allegedly failed to pass the ‘Yo-Yo’ fitness test though he denied failing any test in an interview with Indian Express.
He is currently leading the Uttar Pradesh team in the ongoing Ranji Trophy season 2017-18. Though it has been a bumpy ride for Uttar Pradesh team under Raina’s captaincy as they have lost two games and drawn one in the season.
