about his equation with India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Raina said, "I am not a friend of the captain. No one in cricket is a friend. He is a professional cricketer and I am a professional cricketer. Off the field, everyone is friendly but on the field everyone looks at their own performance.
"Dhoni and I play for the same team, Chennai Super Kings, but apart from that there is nothing. People perceive that we are friends but then the same can be said about Sachin (Tendulkar) and Zak (Zaheer Khan). You need to use the word friend in the right context," he added.
