The Mumbai-based young gun, Sidhesh Lad is excited to learn fresh things from Indian batting legend, Rahul Dravid. In addition, Lad is keen to learn as he broke out for IndiaA in the forthcoming Quadrangular limited-overs series.
“I will get to learn a lot from him (Rahul Dravid), and I will try to learn as much as possible from him,” Lad told PTI.
The upcoming Quadrangular series will feature four teams which include India A, Australia A, India B and South Africa A respectively.
Schedule of the series:
This four-team series will kick-off on August 17. The first match of the tournament will begin at Vijayawada. Whereas, the final of the competition will take place on August 29.
The 27-years-old Siddhesh had elevated his status as a saviour man for Mumbai. However, the young Lad made his debut against Punjab in 2013. He has secured 2,767 runs in 39 first-class matches.
A return gift to his success:
Moreover, it is the first time that Lad has broken into India A squad. Lad feels that it is merely a return gift to his hard work and consistency what he displayed during his recent past.
“I feel, from the performances I have put in (in domestic cricket), it is a well-deserved opportunity, and it is in my hands to grab it,” he said.
Also, confident to present the same show:
After rejoicing the first drop of success, Siddhesh Lad is confident that he will be giving his 100 percent for India A as he used to do for domestic side Mumbai. He said there will not be any change in his routine approach while playing under the tutelage of Rahul Dravid.
“My job is to give 100 per cent, and my approach and
routine will be the same as I play for Mumbai. I have been doing good for Mumbai. I think I have been rewarded for what I have done,” said Lad
