Shardul prepared for the big moment
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.”
