He seems to have gone back that and maybe that is an influence to Rahul Dravid coming into the setup. He knows his game so well from that time.

“He has gone back to his outdated technique. He is enjoying alongside the road of the ball as an alternative of going back and throughout and now he’s reaping the rewards. New Zealand would have had a plan for that back and throughout motion by focusing on his entrance pad, they nearly obtained there however an inside edge saved him,” Doull added.
