Shardul pre­pared for the big mo­ment

The Hindu - - SPORT -

Shardul Thakur is yet to get a game for In­dia de­spite re­ceiv­ing his maiden call-up more than a year ago, but the Mum­bai pacer says he has been patiently pre­par­ing him­self for the big mo­ment. Shardul could make his in­ter­na­tional de­but on Thurs­day.

“Over the past few years I have been work­ing hard. When­ever I get a chance to play, I should be ready. Keep­ing that in mind I al­ways pre­pare for the game,” said Shardul on Wed­nes­day.

Asked about work­ing with Bharat Arun, Shardul said: “This is my first as­sign­ment with him in the (In­dian) team and so far it’s been good,” said Shardul.

On M.S. Dhoni, Shardul said: “I have asked about his ex­pe­ri­ences. He has given me ad­vice when­ever I have asked him. He’s a wick­et­keeper and seen lot of bowlers very closely, and knows what do they do in a par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion. Play­ing with him in the IPL was a great boost be­cause I learnt a lot from him.”
