“With Dinesh, it is clear with the role. On the backend of the game, that can make all the difference. So he has been picked to bat in those positions and do well for India as well.” Rahul Dravid said this in the pre-series press conference on Tuesday.

With Dinesh Karthik even though the team management expects him to play the finisher’s role, it is still unclear whether he is planning an immediate one. With yet another T20 World Cup, Hardik is expected to play a key role in the lead-up to the tournament in October.

So happy to have Hardik Pandya back. Hardik’s leadership was impressive all through the IPL. You need to be a designated leader to be part of a leadership group. From our point of view, we would like to get the best out of his skills, batting, bowling and fielding.” Dravid said.

India missed Hardik in the T20 World Cup 2021 and lacked balance as five players from the team did not bowl. Now this issue will be resolved with Hardik.

On Hardik Pandya:

RD: So happy to have Hardik Pandya back. Hardik’s leadership was impressive all through the IPL. To be part of the leadership group you need to nominate a leader. From our point of view, we would like to get the best out of his skills, batting, bowling and fielding.

On resting Rohit Sharma:

Rohit is our all-format player. It would be unwise to expect everyone to be available at all times. We want them to stay fit and fresh too. There are times when we have to give rest to our big players.

On KL Rahul’s slow attitude

We are looking for a good start. We know our top 3. If it’s a high scoring game, we want them to maintain that strike rate, but there will be tough matches as well. We have the kind of quality that we can deliver in the top 3.

With Dinesh, it is evident with the role. On the backend of the game, that can make all the difference. So he has been selected to bat in those positions and do well for India as well.

Umran Malik

He is fast and improving with every session. He has a lot to learn. We have to be realistic about the timing of the game as we have a huge squad.

On world record:

We are not thinking about the world record. We do not pay attention to such statistics. If we play well we will win and if we do not play we will not win.
