Later, Raina took to social media to share pictures of his daughter.

Raina has never missed a game in the Indian Premier League in the last eight years but the birth of his daughter made him break his tremendous attendance record.

In his absence, the Lions were led by Kiwi Brendon McCullum and they suffered a heavy defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Currently, the Lions are placed fourth in the IPL table with a good chance to qualify for the play-offs.
