Rahul Dravid Is Ready For The IPL
What he said:
"I’m preparing for the IPL."
Rahul Dravid jokingly answers a query as to why and how he uncharacteristically slammed a couple of sixes in his 36th ton in the second Test at the Eden Gardens against the West Indies.
For six weeks with your IPL team, you’re hitting shots all the time.But I don’t think it’s just that. Whenever I’ve been in good form in my career, everything seems to flow. I pick up the length better and get fully forward or back. It’s also about not missing out on the fours.
What he really meant:
“Isn’t that more believable?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“IPL is excellent preparation for the ardours of Test cricket.”
