“He resided in Bangalore, while the cricket match was taking place in Chennai. And he used to travel to Chennai to play in the Chennai league, one of India’s most successful leagues. He would enter and produce one hundred after another. each game. And while I had talent, I would loft the ball and do other things. Get outside and leave. Lofting, going out far enough, and other things “In a video posted by IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad, Badani made the statement.
In the video, Badani also described how Dravid stuck to his playing approach despite scoring a century.
“Rahul would only keep the ball on the floor. At one point I said, Rahul you have got one 100, you got two, you got four, you’ve got 5. What the hell is happening Rahul? Aren’t you bored? Don’t you like to try something else here?,” Badani narrated the incident of a funny conversation with Dravid.
