Kolkata, November 14: Enjoying a golden run having scored five tons in less than six months, Rahul Dravid today gave credit to chief coach Duncan Fletcher for his tips which has proved to be invaluable.
The 38-year-old who scored his 36th Test century wants to make most of his brilliant form.
“I worked with Duncan (Fletcher) a little bit. He has suggested a few things which are helping. He can read the game quite well. It's good to have him around. He suggested a couple of things which are helping,” Rahul who is now the highest run-getter in Tests in 2011 said at the day end media conference.
Asked whether he has been doing something differently, Dravid said: “No... But the Jamaica century gave me confidence. I just carried on from there. I did not change my technique much.”
The 39-year-old wants to make best use of this good patch.
“It feels as if I am in some form. I am in a good patch. I'm in good space with my game and mentally as well. I am really trying to make it count and let it last as long as I can,” Dravid stated.
He sounded cautious about how things can just radically change from being good to worse as he has seen numerous ups and downs in his career.
“I had been through a tough time. But I feel good... Even in the nets, I feel quite relaxed. Just want to make it count till it lasts. Cricket it's a funny game, you never know when the tough time is round the corner. But as long as you have a good time going, you got to keep it going.”
