Suresh Raina was counting his lucky stars when he had a fortunate escape from what could have been a serious car accident.

According to media reports, Raina, who was traveling from Ghaziabad to Kanpur to play in a Duleep Trophy match, got a burst on one of the rear tyres of his Range Rover in the city of Etawah.

The police have attributed it to the car traveling at a fast pace but the Indian cricketer has emerged unscathed from the incident.

Etawah police officials helped Raina get another vehicle to reach Kanpur as he was not traveling with a spare tire. Raina will play in Kanpur's Green Park stadium on Wednesday.
