India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is currently gearing up for the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, has admitted that he is “lucky” to play under legendary batsman, Rahul Dravid.

Dravid has been named Team India’s head coach for the Sri Lanka tour in the absence of Ravi Shastri.

With the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are in England preparing for an all-important Test series against the hosts, Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Men in Blue in the Sri Lanka series and Bhuvneshwar will be his deputy.

The 31-year-old recently said that he is keen to learn from Dravid during the series against Lankans.

Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Connected show, Bhuvneshwar said, “I wanted to work with Rahul Dravid and I am lucky that he is the coach. The young players have played under him for India A.

“We want to work under him and pick his brain and want to understand how he manages things at that level for such a long time,” the fast bowler added.

Talking about his role of vice-captain, Bhuvneshwar asserted that he is looking forward to helping others in improving their skills.

“Being a senior player my role is to do things that help other players in improving their skills and mental health. Being the vice-captain of Team India is an honour and a responsibility.”
