The triple and there­after

Sportstar - - INTERVIEW KARUN NAIR - SHAYAN ACHARYA

For me, it has al­ways been about get­ting bet­ter as a crick­eter. I have tried im­prov­ing day by day. I am try­ing to en­joy my game and I am not try­ing to look at the con­se­quences or the out­comes.

At 26, Karun Nair has seen the world, lit­er­ally. The stylish Kar­nataka bats­man grabbed eye­balls while play­ing an un­beaten knock of 303 against Eng­land at the M. A. Chi­dambaram Sta­dium in Chen­nai. That was in the win­ter of 2016.

But even af­ter scaling such heights, Nair has failed to ce­ment his place in the na­tional side. But that hasn’t af­fected the bats­man, who con­tin­ues to be one of the most con­sis­tent per­form­ers for his state side in the do­mes­tic cir­cuit.
