Gaurav Gupta writes for the Times of India that Karun Nair and Jayant Yadav's quick transition from Team A players to international players is down to the efforts of Rahul Dravid. He also describes how Dravid's efforts have saved India in an injury-filled season when many key players were ruled out.
From The Times of India:
While Yadav and Nair deserve all the credit for having adjusted to the high-pressure environment of international cricket like fish takes to water, somewhere, a little credit must also go to batting legend Rahul Dravid - the coach of the India A team since May last year - for making them battle-ready for the top level. In what has proved to be an astute move by the BCCI, it put 'The Wall' in charge of the A team and then scheduled a series of A tours with the purpose of developing a good bench strength.
"I think the India A tour helps really as there is a big gap between the Ranji Trophy and international cricket. The India A series kind of fills that void. Rahul Sir has always been of a big help to me. I've been with him since the Rajasthan Royal days. He has always backed me," Nair told bcci.tv on Monday.
