Suresh Raina has no problems batting at No 4 in the Indian team despite being a No 3 batsman for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL). 

"I don't see it as a problem as we have big hitters across all slots. Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya can play big shots. It is important to now maintain a consistent performance graph from here till the World T20," explained the left-hander.

"We have a good mix of youth and experience in our team. There are members of the 2007 World T20 team as well as the 2011 World Cup team. We are fortunate to have them."

Raina has also reiterated that it will be emotional for him to play for another franchise after eight years with the formidable Chennai Super Kings.

"I have played for CSK non-stop for eight years without missing a single game. So it will be emotional for me. But at the same time, we have a very good team at the Gujarat Lions."
