Former cricketer Rahul Dravid has said that current Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is great example of how to succeed in all three forms of the game. Dravid quoted Kohli’s example while underlining the importance of Test cricket. "If you don't play Test cricket, there are other forms of the game, as well. I love T20 and ODI crickets. They are very skillful forms of the game. People like Virat Kohli are great examples who have shown that you could succeed in all form of the game. It is not easy. Not many people have done but that should be your goal," Dravid was quoted as saying by ANI. Test Specialists Like Ajinkya Rahane & Cheteshwar Pujara Might Play for India A Against England Lions
Dravid also said that he always tells his players that playing Test cricket is the greatest form of satisfaction in the game. The 45-year-old, however, added that not all players are into Test cricket, as they prefer shorter formats like T20 and ODI formats of cricket.
"I always tell them (Under-19 players) you will get the greatest satisfaction is playing in Test cricket. Test cricket is the hardest form of the game. Nothing tests you like Test cricket. Over a period of five days, you are tested physically, mentally, technically, emotionally. So that's the challenge. I tell U-19 kids that if you want to be challenged to your then test cricket is what you should try and play," he added.
