Rahul Dravid: Current team India has potential of winning abroad
Mumbai: Cricketing legend Rahul Dravid on Thursday said that plenty of home Tests in the coming months would ensure better performance from Indian middle order in abroad Tests.
He claimed that the home Tests would give the batsmen enough time to get comfortable at their batting position which benefits the batsman as well as the team at large.
“The current Indian batting talent has impressed me a lot as they are growing with every match, developing themselves as a team and figuring their way out. I believe, by the time India would get its first tour abroad, we would have a very confident and settled batting line up in place to take on the new challenges," said Dravid at an event.
"Having a set middle order and guys feeling comfortable at their positions would surely provide us great chances of succeeding abroad. The current batting lineup has a lot of potential to perform and succeed in all conditions," said the former Indian skipper.
During his conversation with Link Group MD John McMurtie at the launch of 'Link Lecture Series', Rahul Dravid said, "The current bunch of players is performing very well and I believe they have some extraordinary talent. It's good for them as well as the team India that they have a lot of these home Tests in the coming months," said Dravid.
He also poured praises over Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and skipper Virat Kohli saying that they are the priceless assets for the current Indian team.
Rahul Dravid was delighted with India's recent run in Test Cricket under Virat Kohli's captaincy. India has taken 2-0 lead in the ongoing 5-match Test series against England, with 2 matches remaining.
The two teams would face each other in the fourth Test in Mumbai scheduled to kick start on December 8.
