Cricket star Suresh Raina has all praises for former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. "I  respect Dhoni as he is a good human being. Moreover, he is a calmer and a go-to-guy," Raina said while addressing the audience at BW Businessworld's fourth edition of Young Entrepreneur Awards.

Accompanied by his wife Priyanka Raina, when asked about a leadership trait that helps Suresh to run the marriage as well as to lead cricket, he took no time to say 'honesty'. "Honesty is the primary trait of a leader - be it in a relationship or in the profession," he replied during a candid chat with Anurag Batra, chairman and editor-in-chief, BW Businessworld. 
Raina's wife who was a banker added that Suresh helps her to take practical decisions. "Being a woman and a mother, I get swayed by emotions, at times. I look at him whenever I have to make a practical decision," said Mrs Raina who is preparing for her show on FM called The Priyanka Raina Show.

Priyanka is a champion of human rights and feminism, also the co-founder of Gracia Raina Foundation - a trust that aims at providing mother and child wellness.

Also, Suresh was all over the internet recently for his singing abilities. He launched a song which is dedicated to his daughter Gracia, titled Bitiya Rani.  "Singing is my passion. I am the completely different person when I am off the cricket field. I know the mantra of being in a moment," he admitted.
