Raina has been dropped from Indian ODI team for Australia tour but Laxman is confident that this selection setback will make him work even harder.
"I think every batsman has an area of concern and Suresh Raina has been struggling with short-pitched delivery for a long time. But I think, it is more about what his game plan
against short ball will be and hopefully he sticks to it," Laxman said.
The Hyderabadi stylist believes that no batsman is perfect and it is not Raina alone who has a technical problem.
"We have seen Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have problems for the balls outside the off-stump and (Cheteshwar) Pujara has problems with ball that comes in. Everyone has own issues
as no batsman is perfect. So Raina needs to have lot of clarity while facing the short ball,” the cricketer added.
"But having said that, I believe that Raina is an impact player and a match winner in the shorter format. He is live-wire in the field, can play big shots and bowl useful overs. He still has a lot to offer in ODI and T20," Laxman said during the interaction organized by 'Star Sports'.
