Priyam Garg, the young Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman, speaks about Rahul Dravid’s influence on shaping him as a batsman and his character.

The former India captain has been involved with the U-19 sides and India A before taking over the role of head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Dravid has had a massive impact in shaping several youngsters – he was the coach of the Prithvi Shaw-led Under-19 team which won the 2018 U-19 World Cup.

Priyam Garg, who took the U-19 team to the final of the world cup last year, says that the legendary Indian batsman is always ready to help players – whether on the field or in their personal life. He credits Dravid for his batting improvements in the overseas conditons.

“Definitely (his inputs were of great help). Rahul Dravid is a very big player and he is also a very good person. He always helps you, whether you are on the field or off it. He always keeps giving suggestions over what is good for you,” Priyam Garg told India TV in an interview.

“When I went with him to England and South Africa, he shared his experience with me, which helped me a lot. He explained to me how to deal with the conditions, how to bat on those wickets, tackle the bowlers and deal with the various challenges. It really helped my batting a lot on those surfaces,” the right-hander added.

“For the last two years, I and Kartik Tyagi have been playing a lot together. Our U-19 batch is still in touch with each other. We keep talking to each other.

I have been seeing him for the last 6-7 years and he is really focused on his career,” the 20-year-old stated.
