Having made his debut in India’s two-Test series in South Africa, Prasidh struggled to find his rhythm in red-ball cricket, leading to his exclusion from the ongoing England series.
Currently undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy, the Bengaluru-based bowler is focused on honing his abilities to ensure improved performance in the upcoming challenges.
“I am working on my skills on being consistent and doing better for the side,” Prasidh told PTI on sidelines of a promotional event.
Asked what are the areas he would be working on as he already is naturally quick and gets disconcerting bounce off the track, he replied: “Pace is one of those things I will be working on. With confidence and rhythm, all of those (pace) things increase. But then what we need is to bowl in a particular way consistently and stick to the tactics of the team. That’s more important.”
The competition to get a senior national team breakthrough is immense and it only helps an individual to grow as a player.
“Every time someone gets into the team you know he has gone through the grind, through the hard competition and all of that and you are getting the best of the crop. So I think it is great for all individual athletes to fight the competition there is and get a place in the team,” he said.
