Suresh Raina is a former cricket player who played for India in international matches and Chennai Super Kings in the T20 leagues. He was once a star batter and fondly called 'Mr. IPL' and 'Chinna Thala' by the fans. Apart from batting, he is also known for his exceptional fielding skills.

Now, the latest update is that Raina has been bestowed with an honorary doctorate from the prestigious Vels University in Chennai. On August 5, he received the doctorate and shared pictures of the same on his Twitter page. The cricketer is a very close friend to Thala MS Dhoni and always considers Chennai as his second home over the love he has for the CSK franchise.

Sharing the photos, Suresh Raina captioned, "I am humbled to receive this honour from the outstanding institution VELS Institute of Science & technology & Advanced Studies @VelsVistas @IshariKGanesh Sir. I am moved by all the love & thank you from the bottom of my heart. Chennai is home & it has a special place for me" (sic). The images are now going viral.
