A positive step, says Brijesh Patel

Bangalore: Former India cricketer, NCA director and KSCA secretary Brijesh Patel termed Rahul Dravid's appointment as captain a `positive step.'

"The selectors have been positive and they have also given Rahul a longer tenure. So far he has been captain on and off and that is not the way to assess a player.

"Now that he has 12 one-dayers to lead, it gives the selectors a good chance to appraise his skills.

"Rahul is a focused cricketer with a good work ethic and if he can instil his sense of discipline into the team, that will be good," Brijesh Patel said.
