Indian batsman Suresh Raina, who underwent a knee surgery for the second time in Amsterdam on Saturday, stated that getting his left knee operated again was a tough decision. 

Taking to Instagram, Raina put out an update for his fans. 

"I am out of surgery and healing steadily, for which I thank my doctors, family, friends, and everyone who has wished me good health & speedy recovery.

"The issue began way back. It was 2007 when I underwent my maiden knee surgery and later, I was back on the field, giving the game my 100%, all thanks to my trainers & doctors.

"However, a nagging discomfort returned last couple of years. During the episodes of niggling pain, to avoid any impact on my game, my trainers kept me going & helped me a lot in training my muscles well so that it would take the load off of the knee.

"To be honest, a second knee surgery was a tough call to make because I knew it would put me off-action for a few months and I wasn't ready for it until a few weeks ago when the pain had gotten a bit much and I knew there was only one way out of this.

"I hope I'm up on my feet, on the field and ready to give my best very soon again," Suresh Rain wrote.
