Mumbai, May 30: Suresh Raina is happy with his batting form but not with the rumours floating in the media about his personal life.
There were reports in the media about Raina taking his "friendship" to a serious level with actress Shruti Hassan, daughter of Kamal Hassan.
The 27-year-old left-hander is clearly disappointed with these rumours and took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to clarify his status.
Raina, who is currently playing in IPL 7 for Chennai Super Kings, tweeted today that he is "not dating anyone".
"Too many media reports which no one even tries to confirm. This is to clear once & for all. I'm not dating ANYONE," Raina tweeted on Friday afternoon.

A report in "Mumbai Mirror" quoted a source close to Raina and Shruthi as saying, "Raina used to consider her his lucky mascot. This year, she has kept away from the cricket grounds. Yet Raina is playing extremely well. So the superstition has obviously ended. It is a mature relationship now and they are in love. But they are trying to keep it private and not speak about it in public."
Raina and CSK will face Mumbai Indians tonight in Qualifier 2 of IPL 7 at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. The winners will progress to the final to meet Kolkata Knight Riders.
