Ajinkya Rahane credits ‘Role Model’ Rahul Dravid for success
Ajinkya Rahane feels that he has easily adapted to different play styles by speaking with greats such as Tendulkar,skipper Dhoni, and Rahul Dravid.
The shift from ODI to Test to T20 is mainly a psychological one, he says. The trick to transitioning from one format to another is entirely a mental one, he suggests.
Rahane also says that he plays different roles while opening with Sanju Samson and Watson. With Watson he plays more or less as a defensive batsman. While with Sanju, they both play very aggressive cricket, and hit hard.
He says that he would love to be named the Man of The Series for a Test Series.
He stresses that Rahul Dravid had a central role in his evolution to what he is today. Dravid is always open to conversation, and he is a huge help as a mentor to the team.
He also says how consistency is the strongest suit in a batsman, and that he has been working to be a more consistent batsman over the past two or three years.
Commenting on his perceived weakness against off spinners like Moeen Ali and JP Duminy, he says that he is trying to improve each and every aspect of his game, not just his off-spin game.
