I spoke to him a bit – my Dad has done a bit of work for his academy over there,” Renshaw said. “I spoke to him a little bit over there and just (took away) some little things, little gems of wisdom. Someone who’s got (over) 11,000 … Test runs is someone you want to take as much from as possible.

He was always really welcoming and very good with us talking to (me). I talk about my ping-pong game being a little bit like Rahul Dravid – I just try to get everything back. I’ll think about doing that in a Test match,” he added.

It’s always nice knowing you’ve got some runs against an opposition but it’s completely different conditions over here,” said Renshaw. “A few of the lessons I’ve learnt … is concentrating when those quicks come back on. You have a little time where you switch off against the quicks in the subcontinent because the spinners are coming at you so hard that the quicks are a bit of a break, but we don’t want to have that mentality,” Matt Renshaw concluded.
