Former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid on Saturday heaped praises on Indian bowling attack. The 45-year-old also said Indian pacers’ ability to take 20 wickets in a Test has given a huge fillip to the team.
“It is fantastic to see the kind of bowling we’ve been doing. We’ve consistently been taking 20 wickets, and we look like taking 20 wickets in every Test,” Rahul Dravid told reporters, before adding, “When you start a Test knowing your bowling attack can take 20 wickets, it gives you a huge fillip. At the moment, we’ve got four or five guys (fast bowlers). The bench strength in the fast bowling department is pretty good.”
The India A and Under-19 team coach also lauded the brilliance of India’s Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara.
“He has been brilliant in the series. If we go on to win tomorrow (Sunday). He, then, would’ve played two match-winning innings in two Test matches that India has won. I think it’s terrific, the way he has come back after not being picked for the first Test match in England,” Rahul Dravid said after the final of the Chennai leg of the Junior Super Kings T20 tournament.
Rahul Dravid also advised Indian youngsters to learn from every game.
“Every game is a learning experience. This is a journey. You are lucky to be playing such tournaments. These are opportunities to learn,” Dravid said. “The higher you go, it is about the mind. You need to learn to handle pressure. The people who will stand out are those who can handle the pressure better”
