Trying to prove his critics wrong, Suresh Raina has said that he is “built” for Test cricket and is working on playing the short ball — perceived to be the batsman’s weakness — better.
“I know I am built for Test cricket. I have done well in Tests. I played well in the West Indies (last year). The first Test in England also went well for me. I am working hard. The number six or seven slot is a difficult one to bat at. I will prove I am capable of being a good Test player,” Raina told PTI.
About being perceived as a limited-overs cricketer, he said, “People will talk about me being a one-day player, but let them talk, I know I have time,” he said. —
