Feel privileged to work with Rahul Dravid - Carlos Braithwaite

Carlos Braithwaite has become an overnight sensation owing to his utter brilliance in the final of the ICC World T20 2016. The West Indian all-rounder, who was picked by the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL player auctions, earlier this year, is surely the player to watch out for. Blessed with the ability to clear off the ropes with ease, all bowlers need to be wary of the new kid on the block.

The Delhi Daredevils are a side full of youth and vibrant energy. Led by the lively Zaheer Khan and mentored by Rahul Dravid, the Daredevils are the underdogs for this IPL. They have an array of talented youngsters who can achieve success on a given day.

In a recent media interaction, Braithwaite admitted that he was privileged to work alongside Rahul Dravid. The West Indian also said that he had idolized Dravid as a kid. “I find myself privileged enough to be working along with someone I have idolized my entire career and that is Rahul Dravid,” said Braithwaite.  “We had a couple of chats and it is good to hear from him as a person and as a player on what are the areas that I would look to improve on in terms of playing spin. I hope that at the end of six weeks I go back to the West Indies with better understanding of how to play spin bowling, how to rotate it, how to score off it and how to take that knowledge from the IPL back to the West Indies.”

The muscular right-hander also said that he was willing to do any role expected of him from the Daredevils management. “I will bat wherever the team requires and if the team decides that they need to use me at a particular number then I need to adapt to that position and do the best I can for my team,” he said. “If the situation asks me to bat in the same way that I do for West Indies then I also need to adapt to that and do what I need to do – even if that requires me hitting one six or doing it by singles, I am prepared to do that for the franchise. It is about adapting all the time to make sure that the Daredevils come out on top in each and every game”.
