The wall is mended to guard India against Mendis

R D speaks..






India’s premier test batsman Rahul Dravid said that he was ready
to take on Ajantha Mendis in the upcoming away test series against SL.


 


“He is an important bowler and he did play a crucial role in our
series loss in 2008, but, we played him well at home earlier and I am sure we
are better prepared to play him now.” Rahul said.


 


When asked about his own preparations for facing Mendis, this is
what Rahul said.


 


“I don’t need to do any special preparations and the long gap
after IPL has helped me a lot. I got time to spend with my family and to work
on fitness and relaxation. Now it is time to get back to cricket”


 


Rahul was speaking to the media in New Delhi where he received an
award “The person of the year” and also launched the ‘Limca Book of Records’
latest edition.


 


Looking forward to at least one more double century from you in
this series Rahul..

Dear PD,

Like all of us cricket lovers, even I would want them to continue playing, but, we have to accept the reality and the reality is that we are witnessing the very last phase of the career of these great batsmen. The fact that Laxman and Rahul are playing only tests and Sachin, though, as masterly as ever is 37+ now, makes me believe that we are not going to see these guys in action in 2012. Laxman, being younger by a couple of years may play a bit longer only if he stays fit. I would also not want these super players to wait till the time their forms desert them and they are forced to resign when they couldn't score. I would want them to score double centuries in their last knocks.

yeah probably but still not wishing it to end......cos they still look the best and i do think they would play for a bit much longer......as u see laxman only has test to look to ..........dravid currently only test too unless he's recalled so yeah they would luv to play for their country till they can .....and sachin yet at his peak will join them and play for a lot more yrs.....

On the flat helpless SL wickets, bowlers find life really difficult. It is crucial for the trinity to ensure that India scores 600-700 runs for the bowlers to put the Lankans under pressure. This is probably the last time that the trinity is going to play in the emerald island so they have to come up with something special.

really important ...and i mean he's in such fine nick ....scoring at a much faster pace these days and everyone has noticed it so it's gr8 too :) and winning in sri lanka is pretty tough too so once we crack tht under the influence of dravid laxman and sachin it would be a gr8 achievement......so wishin him allluck

Hey PD,

I m sure Rahul will do well. With hardly any test matches in India's schedule ahead, each and every test inning is very important for Rahul. Even in the twilight of his career, the Wall is just as invincible as ever. Good luck to RD and India..I really want him, Sachin and Laxman to play vintage knocks and win the series for us.
