India in South Africa |  Dravid talks about understanding mental space, worked on it last year – Mayank Agarwal

“I’m happy to be able to come back and do the performances and I hope to do the same.”

India starter Mayank Agarwal says his time away from the national team was spent understanding his mental space, something that India coach Rahul Dravid has always emphasized and benefited immensely by claiming his place in the team.

The 30-year-old from Karnataka had lost his place in the squad after being ruled out of the first test in England due to a concussion.

He then made a strong return to the Test setup with scores of 150 and 62 in the second Test against New Zealand recently, as India won the series against the Test World Champions 1-0.

“It is not a new beginning. The last year that passed had a lot to do with understanding myself and understanding what attracts me and what hasn’t worked for me,” Agarwal told his opening partner and vice captain of India, KL Rahul. , during a chat, the video of which was posted on BCCI.tv.

“I’m happy to be able to come back and do the performances and I hope to do the same.” Speaking about Head Coach Dravid’s contribution in the process of understanding himself, Agarwal said: “For me, he has been a person who talks about understanding himself and understanding his mental space. If he can figure it out and fix it, then more often then you are not giving yourself the best possible chance of succeeding. ” “Knowing him, he is a man who really strives and puts responsibility in good solid preparation. We had quality sessions here and we are really looking forward to playing the test match,” he said, but did not elaborate on what exactly he learned. .

Agarwal and Rahul have shared the dressing room for the Karnataka state team and have also opened innings together for the Punjab Kings in the IPL for the past four years.

Rahul hoped their camaraderie would help them score runs together and win India matches, starting with the opening test against South Africa starting on December 26.

“My trip has been beautiful, I would not have wanted it any other way. You have been part of my journey and I have been on yours and we both had to work hard for this, for both of us it has been a beautiful journey”, said KL Rahul.

“We had our doubts if we play for India and we never give up our dreams and work harder and it’s amazing sometimes to sit and think about how we started and where we are today, it’s magical for me.

“It is just the beginning for us and we still have a long way to go, and the friendship and understanding that we have shared for so many years will only help us build a better association and win more games for the country.”
