After snub, this is what Karun Nair is planningLast updated on Oct 04, 2018, 07:42 pm
Karun Nair probably is one of the most unluckiest cricketers in recent times.
The middle order batsman was dropped for the series against West Indies with reasons only known to the selectors and the management.
He warmed the bench for 6 Tests in 2018 after being in the Indian squad.
And now the 'resilient' Nair has opened up on his plans.
Things have not gone right for Nair
Eyebrows were raised when Nair wasn't selected for the fifth Test at Oval against England, last month.
Instead the Indian management picked newcomer, Vihari.
Ex-cricketers Sunil Gavaskar and Harbhajan Singh criticized Nair's omission.
Chief selector MSK Prasad stated that Nair was consulted about the decision, but the player stated otherwise.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli refused to be drawn into the debate.
Nair seeks inspiration from Dravid
According to a report in The Times of India, Nair is keen to be part of the India A team in November and work under Rahul Dravid's guidance.
"I think there is an 'A' tour to New Zealand in November, it will be great to be a part of that team and work with Rahul sir. It will be very important for me."
Nair wants to pick on Dravid's brains
Nair said that he wants to get inputs on the areas he needs to work on.
"I'm looking forward to working with Rahul sir and ask him about the areas I need to work on and see if he has anything to say about it. I am looking forward to this season I just want to keep working on my game and keep scoring."
Important phase ahead for Nair
Rahul looks after the India A and the India U-19 team. He has been superb in his role as a coach.
Therefore Nair could benefit largely if he makes the cut in the India A side.
The team is set to tour New Zealand.
But with the management not keen on Nair, it remains to be seen how his progression goes.
