Karun Nair has decided to go to the shelter of India A coach Rahul Dravid to work on the areas where he needs to improve after getting overlooked for the home Test series against the West Indies.
Nair, who is the only the second Indian to score a triple century in Test cricket, is now focusing to work on his game and giving his best to Karnataka in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy after Test snub.
He is also looking forward to work with Dravid and hoping his guidance will help him to make it to the national squad again, as India A are set to tour New Zealand next month and it will be great opportunity for the Karnataka batsman to pick the brain of the legendary Indian batsman to bounce back.
Nair told The Times of India on Thursday, “Right now, I’m focused on working on my game and giving my best to the Karnataka team in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy… I just want to keep the runs coming in whichever game I play. I think there is an ‘A’ tour to New Zealand in November, it will be great to be a part of that team and work with Rahul [Dravid] sir. It will be very important for me to work with him and given an opportunity to score some runs there with the India A team.”
The 26-year-old right-hander further added, “I’m looking forward to working with Rahul sir and ask him about the areas I need to work on and see if he has anything to say about it. I am looking forward to this season I just want to keep working on my game and keep scoring.”
Nair signed off by saying, “He has been extremely supportive as a mentor and coach. I’ve known and worked with Rahul sir for about 4-5 years now. I’ve become comfortable with him and find him very approachable. I speak to him a lot about the game and life as well.”
