Told him that we need him more as a bowler: Rahul Dravid

Ravindra Jadeja - Eng vs Ind

The head coach of Team India, Rahul Dravid shared a lot about Jasprit Bumrah with the host broadcaster, saying, "I think he (Jasprit Bumrah) is a very thoughtful individual, understands the game very well. Also, he commands the respect of the team, which is very important as a leader.

Bowling changes, field changes obviously will only get better with time. It's a new challenge. It's not easy for a fast bowler to captain, he's got to think about his own bowling too. Have had a few conversations with him, and told him that we need him more as a bowler."

"Captaincy is something that you'll get better at as you do it more. Lot of talks about England and their style of batting. I'm looking forward to it. The quality we have in our fast bowling is something that we take pride in.

They have performed all over the world and I think it’s going to be an interesting contest. It's about focusing on ourselves, then on the opposition.

Hitting the top of off stump is still a very good ball and it's about hitting that spot consistently. If they (England) have the skill to attack our best deliveries, then good luck to them," he added.
